unable to zoom out far enough

unable to zoom out far enough

unable to zoom out far enough

Sometimes I'll start a new drawing and try to draw a line that is, say, 100 inches long. The line goes off the screen cause it's longer than the display is currently wide. I try to zoom or pan out with the mouse but I can't go past a certain screen size. It's like I butt up against a wall or something.  I end up having to go up the the View/Zoom/Out command to "break out" of the setting.  What is causing these limits to zoom/scroll? Is it a display option I can change? thanks. Johnny

RE: unable to zoom out far enough

I'm not sure what causes it, but it will happen in 2002 as well.
