      I have been trying your tutorial on importing images. Unfortunately, I am stuck at section 5. I dont understand where to enter the coordinate points to set the scale, and, does this have to be done for every point on the model?

      A couple of days ago I loaded a background image and managed to get the correct scale. I clicked on a point of my image where I knew the actual measures of the hull and then set the coordinates (lets say frame 123.453 meters and 12 meters upper deck), then I just moved the image using the “origin” option to its right location so it fitted the drawing correctly.

      I worked fine then. However now, the bad news is that I’ve been trying to scale a new background image but it does not work, it only moves the image from left to right but it does not scale the image. It’s been like this for a couple of days and I can’t figure out why.
      What am I doing wrong?

      EDIT: Nevermind, problem solved.
