Dear fellow cad users,

ver: Autocad 2000:

I switched to paper space by typing tilemode 0 'enter'. The paper is
A4. When I tried to set the limits from 12,9 default to 297,210, this error
message appeared:
Cannot set paper space limits when paper margins
or background are displayed.

Don't understand the meaning. Background are displayed? How to turn it off?
Paper margin? I am going to set it, how come it is displayed before that?
Explain what is wrong and how to make it work.

Thank you.

Patrick

The whole idea of limits was to represent the drawing sheet so you could
keep your drawing in the page. In paperspace, you have the sheet, you do not
need the limits. Limits are a rather archaic idea anyway. I'm surprised that
anyone still uses them.
