View Full Version : Civil 3D: Text in paperspace is huge and jumbled!
30th Nov 2008, 09:31 pm
I'm just doing basic alignments and profiles. The model and parcels look fine, but the text around the alignments, parcels and profiles are huge and jumbled.
Everything looks fine in modelspace, but in paperspace it's a jumbled mess.
What's wrong here?

You probably need to edit your alignments, parcels and profile "styles" and set the text height, sorry an area I hate having to change so leave it to others.

That would be my first guess too. Look at the styles of the problem items. If you can't figure it out post a screen grab or the dwg for us to see.

The text will always show smaller in modelspace versus paperspace until the height is set. I usually set mine at .08 or .10.

If you're using Civil 3D 2009, it may be an annotation issue. Once you've got the viewport zoomed in at the right scale, the text stays at its original height. For some reason REGEN doesn't fix it. The only way I've found to get the text to the right scale (short of closing and reopening the drawing) is to turn the viewport off and back on again.

Thanks for the replies everyone!
I got tired of editing all the text heights and arrow sizes in the prospector tab, so I just opened the drawing up in AutoCAD 2007, and it looks great. Don't know why it should be different, but alas, it is...
