In AutoCAD 2010 I want to set the scale to 1 inch = 100 feet How do I do that?

I’m using AutoCad 2010. Every time I type in the length of the line (500 feet for example) the line is to big for my screen. So I have to adjust the scale somehow.

    You don’t need to set the scale, you just need to zoom out.

    type:
    z1/1200x, or simply use your scroll wheel on the mouse if you have one.

    Try using the EXTENTS option within the ZOOM command. Double click the wheel on your mouse if you have one. Or, in the command line, type Z, press enter, then type E, and press enter again. This will zoom out far enough so that you can see the extents of anything you have in your drawing.
