I worked with civil 3d at my old job and we had always set our plot scale 1"=1' and then in the viewport set the standard scale to be the scale of our drawing. Now at my new job we are moving from land desktop to civil 3d and my boss wants to use the plot scale to be the same as the drawing scale and the standard scale be 1:1. when I do this all my civil 3d objects are too small to be legible. I have tried setting the annotation scale to be the drawing scale and the standard scale to be 1:1 but as soon as you switch viewports or regen the text objects shrink back down.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Try setting the following:
Then you should be able to change your annotation scale in model space to whaterver suits your task while your viewports will retain their scales.
I don't know what is more common, but I personally keep paper space at 1 to 1 and set scales in my viewports.
I'm not sure what you are doing, but viewing obects at 1"=1' will always be tiny in model space. I change my model space scale to whatever is conveinent to my current task or match it to the scale of my main viewport (1"=20', 30', 40' etc.)
If it is only annotative text that is giving you isues, set ANNOAUTOSCALE = 4, change to the scale you need, or to 1:1 and then back. This will add the scale to those annotative objects.
