Universal Text Height Change

715 Views, 3 Replies

Anyone have a suggestion on how to universally change text height? I went in and changed the text style height, however, it didnt change the height of the text (which was using that style). I'm not sure how to quickly change the text height on all our sheets. We have a LOT of text.

I know that I can isolate a layer and then change it that way. OR I could do a match prop but I just thought I'd sent this out there in hopes that someone else has a quicker idea. Is there some type of filter that we could use?

Thanks in advance!

Pick one text, right click, Select Similar.

"Select Similar" is an AutoCAD Architecture command/feature as far as I
know. Text height can come from the Text Style with a nominated height
which you can change via the STYLE command. Text height can also come
from a specific property of the text. You can perhaps select text with
quick select and in one click change all the heights. You could even
select text on layer X with a height of "Y" as well. I'm guessing from
your post that you aren't using annotative text which can also control
the height. Is this a start?

did you try properties? you can select all the text or mtext and just go to PROPERTIES, TEXT, HEIGHT then type the new height you want your text to be. if your changing single line text you need to do some adjustments regarding the spacing between you text but if it's an mtext you should be ok.
