    Excellent procedure. Some clarification … Set original dwg. to no scale (1:1), select all and copy original dwg. Go to new blank dwg page that has been already set to new page size AND new scale. Paste copied dwg. The pasted image may be off to a side … zoom out to find. Drag the pasted image into the dwg. page.
