    Default Change annotation scale in model space

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hello: I am attempting to write VB code that will take user input-'Scale' and update a base drawing so that the annotation scale matches that of the user input. Can someone point me in the right direction on how to do this programmatically? Thanks in advance.

    I've found it...to all who are also curious, the answer is simple but I overlooked it.

    ThisDrawing.SetVariable "cannoscale", "1:" & user defined scale

    The user definde scale in my case was a scale value entered into a textbox.
