    Unhappy Isometric Crosshair Size

    In AutoCAD 2008 I don't see a way to extend my Isometric Crosshairs to limits of my screen. Even if I set my Crosshair size to 100%, it doesn't affect my isometric Crosshair length. Does anyone know how to fix this?
    Thanks.

    Looks like something else they fixed though it wasn't broken.

    Have you tried a number that is close, but not equal to, 100?
    If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.

    Yes. It's close (enough).

    Autodesk recommends setting the crosshair size to 99. This is better than nothing, but not as good as it should be.

    Lightbulb Re: Isometric Crosshair Size

    Hi Guys,

    I just installed AutoCAD 2007 and ran into this problem. One of my coworkers had their AutoCAD 2007 isometric crosshairs extend to the edge of the screen so I knew the 99 percent setting wasn't the best solution. I checked/unchecked every box on my Options until I got the crosshairs to extend (and change color to white without changing the setting in Options - Display - Window Elements - Color).

    Try this.

    Options - 3D Modeling - 3D crosshairs - Disable (Show Z axis in crosshairs) and enable (Show labels for dynamic UCS).

    Thanks so much.
