Wire Number Text Size

Can someone please advise how to set the wire number text size and wire gap size. I am using the auto wire insert and when wires cross I want a gap to be inserted, so the gap needs to open up when the text size is increased.

Are you referring to the text in-line with the wire as in


The gap settings are in the drawing properties \ WireNumber Tab \ New Wire Placement \ In-Line \ Gap Setup... Button.

The wire number height should be done at the block level. The block names for in-line wire number are: WD_WNH1 and WD_WNV1

If your changing them, you should change the rest as well.

Above wire: WD_WNH and WD_WNV 

Below wire: WD_WNH2 and WD_WNV2


Or do you mean when another wire happens to run through another wires wire number?
