linetypes

Hello everyone, I have created some line types with text, but how do I get the text taller?

 

this is the linetype:

 

*COLD_WATER_SUPPLY,Cold water supply ---- CW ---- CW ---- CW ----
A,.5,-.2,["CW",STANDARD,S=.1,U=0.0,X=-0.1,Y=-.1],-.2

I believe the S code stands for size.  You have 2 ways to change the text height:  1)Change the entity's or the global linetype scale, or 2) Change the linetype definition to increase the S value from 0.1 to whatever you want.

Change the height of your standard text.

thanks for the responce, but when I use the line type the text is the same height regaurdless what I set it to.

 

For example: I stype in style change the text height, then create the line type, but this doesn't have any effect when I use it in a drawing.

Yes your correct sorry.

 

As it's a line, the height is detemined by the line type scale.

 

Change the scale and the height changes accordingling.
