Annotation scale questions

349 Views, 2 Replies

Now that I am writing this, I realize it may be a Civil3D question.  When I change my drawing scale in the "Drawing Settings" dialog box to 1"=40', for example.  The Annotative scale in the Properties Palette changes to 1"=40'_XREF.  Does anybody know this means?  Thanks in advance for your help!

check with command _SCALELISTEDIT which scale-definitions you have and clean the ones that are not necessary (and hold the list as clean as possible).


The scales have a name and a scale-factor, the problem is there may be more scale-definitions with different names but same scale-factors. Now if you set to a new scale the problem is that some internal functions does not search for a scale with a specific name but for a scale with the same scale-factor (and just search for the first one, that may be the one with the wrong name).


Anyway, the only help is: clean it whenever possible.
