We do not recommend using this Task on Projected Views that are linked to a Parent View.
The values entered into the task create a specific zone on the drawing for the view (see image below).
DriveWorks will scale up the generated drawing view as much as possible to fit the zone.
Dimensions are not constrained to this zone.
