Copy/paste from another AD doc changes size of objects

Recommended Posts

When I copy arrows I have created in one AD doc and paste them into another AD doc their size is greatly reduced. A group of arrows which was 3941.7 x 4642.7 became 708.5 x 835.7. Each arrow has a shaft and an arrowhead grouped, each grouped under its own layer. I have tried one arrow at a time (shaft and arrowhead) and the result is the same, a greatly reduced shaft and arrowhead. If I cut and paste within the same AD doc there is not problem. The copy is pasted exactly where it was and it is the same size. I can link the x and y and resize the objects to the correct size, but wonder why this is happening. Any ideas?

So I am assuming your measurements aren't in pixels, because you have fractions (decimal places).  So the first thing I guess I would check is the dpi settings between the documents, and the measurement value settings between the documents too.
