Autocad dimension and lines scale

3284 Views, 1 Replies

Hello


when I draw a shape and add a dimension to it, the text and the numerical and the arrows of the dimension are small, so I have to increase the text height manually

 

how can I make it automatically scale itself?

 

also similiar thing with the lines, I tried putting a dashed center line on a shape, it looks solid but when I zoom it it does not.

 

how can I solve this?

Hi,

 

>> the text and the numerical and the arrows of the dimension are small, so I have to increase the text height

If also arrows are to small then it's not correct to just raise the text-height.

For dimensions there is the variable DIMSCALE (>>>details<<<) that is sometihing like a "global factor for all dimension-subebelement sizes". If you look into the dimension-style you also can modify each seperate size, and also important may be to read about annotative objects (>>>here<<<).
