How can I edit the Autodesk-AutoCad x and y coordinate surface? I would like it to have a larger coordinate boundary than the default...

    'limits' is the command in AutoCAD. Not sure if that's what you are looking for.

Older versions of CAD often would give you errors of drawing outside the limits. I found the LIMCHECK command would allow me to extend the limits of the drawing area. In newer versions of CAD though, this is not required.


there is no limit to the coordinate boundary in autocad. Just draw from here to infinity (and beyond).

  • At least with modern versions. There might have been restrictions in the 80's or so.
