      I am using DelftShip Free.

      My problem is that my project (an IOM R/C sailboat @ LOA = 1 meter) was set to actual scale, resulting in points reading in four (4) decimal points.

      I would like to “scale up” the project (say to LOA = 100 meters) to permit greater accuracy in design, but when I change the Project Settings the points are still identified as the decimal coordinates of original Project Settings.

      How do I “scale up” (from LOA = 1 meter, to LOA = 100 meter) with concurrent change in coordinates (0.00 reflected as 1.00)?

      The follow-on to this question, is how to set back to original settings (LOA = 1 meter) to facilitate use of Hydrostatic readings?

      I’ve wracked my brain on this, and acknowledge that I am probably not “seeing the forest for the trees… Any help that can be offered will be greatly appreciated!

      Hi!
      Try “Transform->Scale” from the top toolbar to see if this will fulfill your needs.

      Kind regards,

      Dida,

      If you are ever standing close to me at the bar, you will never have to pay for your drinks!

      Somehow, I knew that the answer was too close for me to see.

      This fixes it – EXACTLY!

      Thank you for taking the time to post your respons.

      S/F, Phillip
