I am having problems bringing in an xref dwg in a viewport. The scale for my stationing labels are huge and I cant remember how to fix it. I have had this happen before but cant think of the fix. I attached a picture to show the issue. Thanks in advance for any help.

If a regenall or close/open don't fix it, look at the page setup.  Is it plotting with the right units?

 

Please don't post pictures as word documents.  Just post the picture itself!  (png seems to be best)

Is it possible the vport does not have a proper scale?

Thank you

Make sure to scale the viewport to the proper scale using the viewport scale dropdown in the status bar.

Do a RegenAll if necessary too.

Did you ever find a solution?

 

I think the better question to ask here is what is the viewport's annotation scale?
