Excel Data linking; Table wrapping text format issues
DataLinkQ posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceHi everyone, Setup; OS: Win 7 Pro X64 Product: AutoCAD 2015 Electrical CPU: i7 Graphics: AMD FirePro M6100 FireGL V Ram: 16GB Problem; I've created a datalink table to an Excel spreadsheet, and I'm only having issues with tables that required a break (table wrapping). Once I break the table and setup text properties; text height, alignment, headers, cell widths. Everything looks okay until I close and open the drawing. The first half of the table remembers the settings, but the second half always reverts back to .5 text height and top center alignment (headers and cell width are still in place on the 2nd part of the table) Solutions I've tried; I've tried to do the formatting before I break the table, I've tried after its broken. I right clicked on the tables and "Remove All Property Overrides" which makes the text all crazy, so I setup text properties, qsave and close. once I open the drawing text height and alignment changes again. If I try to "Remove All Property Overrides" the text doesn't change, so I think that function worked correctly. Summary; How can I get the 2nd half of the datalinked table to remember all property settings? I'm out of ideas Does anyone have some other solutions to try? Thanks for your time. -DataLinkQ
BSI or ISO standard text heights for an A1 border
WPerciful posted a topic in CAD ManagementI've working on an A1 border that matches our ANSI D border. We use the following text heights: 1/16" 3/32" --- Our standard text height for most work 1/8" 5/32" 1/4" Does anyone know what the BSI or ISO standard text heights for an A1 border would be?
Problem keeping my text height at 1/8
yosty02 posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputI usually draw in model space 1:1 and then scale my drawing in paper space to fit my sheet, but when I'm scaling I also scale my text. Is there a way to keep my text at 1/8 even after scaling my drawing from model space? thanks
Dimension Text Height too Small
caitiebe posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceI am trying to dimension a 1/8" drawing (in model space) and the text height on the dimensions is so small it is not even readable. I have tried modifying the dimstyle to have an "Overall Scale" of 96 (under 'Fit') and a "Scale Factor" of 1 (under 'Primary Units') and vice versa, but neither is working. I have never had this problem before. I am working in AutoCAD Architecture 2010. Also, when i try to dimension this in paper space, the size comes out ok but it is saying a 6' line is 576'... I would rather dimension in model space anyway but what's up with this? I realize 6 times 96 is 576 but how do you get it to be the right length in paper space? Thanks!
Greetings everyone; I am trying my hand at annotative text and I am about to pull out what little hair I have left in trying to figure out how exactly to set the dimension text in model space so I can see it and still be annotative. Here's the problem. I am creating a drawing 1:1 in model space like I'm suppose to. Let's say it's a rectangle, 500mm by 300mm. I draw it, then select it, go into properties and select yes to make it annotative at a 1:20 scale (metric) .Now when I dimension a line the dimension text is so tiny it might just as well be a grid dot. I just don't understand it. I need step by step, hand holding instructions on how to set up my dimension text height in model space and still be annotative. Eventually I want to be able to take a drawing created in AutoCAD 2007 with it's callouts in one size and it's dimensions in another and leader text and arrows in yet another size and read all in model space (without a magnifying glass) and print (oops) I mean plot in paper space without issue.
