    Default Door Tag Annotation Scale Need Help Understanding

    Hello,
    I am trying to create a door tag that the text will be a 1/16" high when plotted at 1/4" = 1'-0" viewport scale. So far I am having no luck.
    I created the tag with a text height of 1" or 1 AutoCad unit.
    I have Annotation Plot Size set to 1/16". (under Drawing Setup)
    I have Scale set to 1'-0" = 1'-0". (under Drawing Setup)
    I used aecdefinetag to create the tag.
    What am I doing wrong?

    Or is there a way to create a door tag that is not annotive?

    Thanks

    I think I figured it out.
    1'-0" = 1'-0" = 12 paper inches = 12 drawing inches
    1:1 = 1 paper inch = 1 drawing inch
    As soon as I set the scale to 1:1 it works just fine (so far)
    Now to go and tag 62 doors in 23 xrefs and see if it keeps working.
