### wildfire Drawing Setup option documentation for: view_scale_denominator

# view_scale_denominator

determines denominator for the view scale before simplifying
the fraction.

## default and available settings

**note**: if set
to a positive integer and view_scale_format
is a decimal, the view scale chosen for the first view of a model in the
drawing is rounded to the nearest value with the specified denominator.
if the view scale is so small that rounding would make the scale 0.0, the value of view_scale_denominator
is automatically changed by multiplying it by the smallest power of 10,
which would give a positive value if rounding the scale down (although
rounding up can happen). when you type a view scale value, you can round
it to an allowable fraction.

the system does not round existing scale values after
you have edited the setup file; they are approximate. displays approximate
scales preceded by a tilde (~), if you set the configuration file option
mark_approx_dims to yes.
if you set it to 0, expresses the scale value
in decimal format.
