Add Scale bars

Most CAD drawings require a north point and scale bar. One of the most efficient ways to do that is to make a block combining your own north point with a series of scale bars. Then, when drafting in GardenCAD, use the Draw>Insert Block>File sequence to locate the block and insert it into model space. If the block is then exploded those scale bars that are inappropriately sized can be removed, leaving your custom north point and suitable scale bar in place. Even more efficient users combine the above with their title block information.

The figure below shows a north point and scale bar inserted in this way.
