Making Metric Annotation Scale Not Working


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I created a new annotation scale to convert mm to inches and changed my DIMSTYLE to dimension to annotative as well, but when I go to dimension nothing happens. My dimensions, arrows and extension lines are still small.


What's more bizzare is when I click the dimension and right click properties, it says my annotation scale is 1:1 and it's not set to change to annotative even though my DIMSTYLE says to. So I have to manually click the dimensions and change them all to my DIMSTYLE and change the annotation scale.


What did I do wrong when I created the new annotation scale?!?!

What is you ANNOAUTOSCALE system variable set to?


Set this to 1 and make sure your anno scale at the bottom right is set to your conversion.

Found the solution--my style overrides were interferring with the annotation scale. I changed the annotation scale on the actual Style, but not the overrides as well.
