How do you rescale a 3D camera view that is already sent to Layout. Used to be an option to resize and I'm not seeing that anymore. Am I missing something? When I send to Layout the rescale option  is grayed out....used to be a convenient option at the bottom of screen to quickly resize, anyway here's the layout file. Thank you

How did you send the view to layout.

If it was an elevation view the Rescale Layout View should be available and work.

it looks like you may have sent an image to layout.

Posting both the plan and layout will help more.

I did try to resend but its not any better or bigger. 

 

Did you zoom in more before sending?

So something like an elevation view or 2D which could have dimensions is the way to go than?

 

Depends on what you are trying to show.

I'll guess at the problem.

 

You have your 3D camera open and the building is as large as possible just fitting within the window.

 

You send to Layout and the image is not large enough, so you want to resize making it bigger.

There are several ways to do what you want.  Here are a few...

 

  • Float over one of the corner edit handles, push and hold the X key, and then left click and drag to enlarge the view. 
  • Select the Layout Box while holding the Shift or control key and then use the little circular handle at the top of your selection to enlarge the view.
  • Select the Layout Box, click on the Transform/Replicate tool and then enlarge the view using a Resize Factor of greater than 1.0.
