Scaling 1:1000

    Hello Juan Manuel,

    If you are using Surfer 14, a scaling ratio of 1:1000 can be defined in the Scaling ratio (1:N) field of the Scale tab in the Properties window.  If you are running an earlier version of Surfer, the scaling ratio can be set in the Map units per cm. field of the same Properties window tab.  For example, entering 1000 in either of these fields will set the map scale so that 1 cm = 1000 map units.

    Note that the default page units in Surfer are inches.  If you need to set the map scale relative to 1 cm, the page units will need to be changed first.  To do this:

    1. Click File | Options.
    2. In the Options dialog, click General.
    3. In the Page units field on the right hand side of the dialog, click Inches and select Centimeters.
    4. Click OK.

    Thanks!

    Thank you very much! I thought the scaling wasn't working since the value on the "Length (page units) wasn´t a round number.

    I´ve put 10 on the "Scaling ratio" field, I think that's the 1:1000. Am I right?

    On another topic. Is there a way to fill the profiles backround with two colors?
    I want to differentiate two types of soil.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Juan Manuel,

    I'm happy to hear that the scaling ratio option is working for you.  Entering 10 in this field would indicate a scale of 1:10.  If a value of 10 looks appropriate, perhaps the map units are not the same as the units you're using to define the scale.  For example, if the map is in meters and you want a scale of 1:1000km then a scaling ratio of 1 would be correct.

    Regarding the profile colors, each profile can be filled with a different color but it is not currently possible to assign multiple colors to a single profile.  For future development, how would you like this type of feature to work?  Do you want to fill above the profile with one color and below the profile with another?  Or do you want to fill below the profile line with a gradient/multiple colors?

    Thanks!

    Katie

    Thank you Katie. I would like to have a tool to maybe paint the profile. Like the brush to paint the grid for example.

    You were very helpful. Thanks again!
