I have a drawing that is 50 scale. However my sections are all 10 scale. When I set my viewport to 10 scale, all my text is tiny. I can go into the style of the section view and change the size, but then it's too large in model space. Nothing I've tried will change the size of my text in paperspace.
A quick check for you. Make sure your plotting units are correct for your layout (inches or mm). We have had this problem several times. They seem to go back to inches when we need mm.
Are you setting your annotative scale to 1:10 when you set you VP scale to ten?
I have to admint, I still feel like I'm I getting lucky when my annotative objects in my viewports come out exactly the way I want them. Yesterday I was having trouble getting data band labels on a profile to show up/plot correctly and I had to set the annotative scale from both within the viewport and in the model space tab. I'm sure someone can correct my method, but it worked for me.
Have you thought of creating the sections in a separate drawing that you set up at 10 scale?
C3D labels are set to plot a specific height. If you set them to be 0.1", then when your viewport scale is 1"=10', they will be 1' in the model. If you switch back to your model tab and it's scale is 1"=50', then they will be 5' in the model.
Are you seeing something other than this? It sounds like you want your text to be the same height in the viewport and the model but you want them to be different scales - that's not going to happen. When working on your sections in model, just set your model scale to 1"=10'. When you are done, set it back to 1"=50'.
Of course, I may have misunderstood the problem and if I did, I apologize in advance.
My drawing is set up for 50 scale, and in model space my text is 5', as it should be. The style is set for 0.1". However in paper space, my viewport scale and anno scale are both set to 10 scale, and my text is only 0.1' instead of 1'. Is this normal? For my purpose, the text size in paperspace should be no smaller than .15', but nothing I do will make the text larger in the viewport, it just gets larger in model space.
