Steve,

Thanks for the information! I'll have to try that because in AutoCAD I have a much 
better Title Block and
could scale the PCB to make a better assembly drawing. I have been using a Mechanical 
layer in Protel with a horid title block and 1:1 scale boards.

One assembly drawing problem I have is when I create a Full Rack PCB (aprox 11 x 16.5) 
I can only print 11x17 and the print is hard to read. I guess I could create a PDF or 
print file and take it to a copy store and have it printed C Size, but I have never 
tried it.

Jeff,

I have also found that if you the export the AutoCAD drawing to
camtastic and the export the camtastic file back to AutoCAD,
that this file is great for assembly drawings as the pads are now
empty (not filled) donuts & squares.
