    Default View port Scale

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hello,

    I am working on an architectural drawing and for some reason when I try to "objectscale" the annotation to the same scale as the view port I am using, it doesn't appear or if it does it is a lot smaller scale than I requested.

    Thank you so much!

    Is the annotation, "annotative"? I know that sounds funny but that is the first thing I would check. If that is the case, check to make sure the viewport is set to display that annotative scale.
    Drafting is a breeze.

    You might also check the scale as defined in the text style and the dimension style. The annotation scale is only one piece of the puzzle.

    Mostly do drafting related to manufacturing. From doing site layouts with proposed updates, additions and renovations to be budgeted and submitted for bid, to updating and changing existing drawings to reflect maintenance and repair/revision work done on site.

    Can you post the drawing file or some screen shots?

    Hey everyone!

    I went in an checked out the things y'all suggested and got it to work right! Thanks for pointing me in the right directions in checking the text style and dimensions styles and the annotative scale!
