I'm going to activate the view port…again by double clicking inside of it.…Go to modify and Change Space.…I'll select my objects and press return.…Since I was already in Model Space…there is only one place for the objects to go.…So out here in Paper Space I can now see my object.…If I look down at the command prompt…we can see the object was changed…from Model to Paper Space…and they were scaled by a factor of .05…so that they remain the same visual size.…
To reverse the process I'll stay in Paper Space,…select the object, go to modify,…Change Space and we can see that…
