Hi,

Does anyone know how to change the scale of the arrows on the horizontal alignments from a factor to a fixed value?

cheers,

Unfortunately, you can't. All labels/symbols are based on the end plotting goal, so they assume all things need to be in plotting inches/mms. I've asked for the same option for the future. We'll see if it shows up! -- James Wedding, P.E. IT Manager Jones & Boyd, Inc. Dallas, TX XP/2 on P4-3.4/1G LDT2005+C3D http://au.autodesk.com Sign up now for AU2004!

Thanks James,

Just to clarify -
I'm happy with the text and leader arrows scaling in viewports - the arrow I was referring to is the direction component of the alignment segments. It seems to vary in size with the length of the segment.

The only control i can find is the ability to turn the display off - is there anything else?

cheers,

Not that I can think of. I found that a label style with only an arrow worked better. I would only use the alignment arrow component during design stages, not for final output. -- James Wedding, P.E.

Hi - I played with making a label style that was the arrow. It seemed to work pretty well (it's a fixed size along all tangents and curves). I made the style in the followng way: Alignment label style Create NEW under the Line style (then under curves) Add a new Block element to the label achor the block to the feature /achor segment select the arrow block that you want to use make any adjustments to scale I needed to rotate the block 180 deg Once the label styles are created... Use the Alignment -Add Labels... -Multisegement (label type) - use the arrow styles for lines and curves Notes: 1. Lines have a direction able label element that you can use. You can also use an arrow block Hope this helps... Dave S "James Wedding" wrote in message news:4185b69c$1_1@newsprd01... > Not that I can think of.
