Convert to PID object

Everytime I replace converted objects into another kind of object, the replaced object is bigger than the original and I can't make it back to its original size. For example, a graphical figure of check valve is converted into PID check valve. And as the project continues, revisions are possible. Found out that the valve placed must be gate so I have to replace the converted check valve into gate but after I replace the check valve, the gate valve is so big. I already checked all valves' scale factors. And they just have the same values. I also checked the block's dimensions, but it's just fine. What must be the possible problem with replacing?

Be sure to check the EDIT SYMBOL option in PROJECT SETUP for the SYMBOL SCALE.  It is typically set to 0.25 for valves.  It sounds like you have already done that but just making sure.
