Horizontal & vertical source/destination arrows

Hi Folks


Have I only just noticed this problem OR have I only just noticed the size of horizontal & vertical arrows are to a different scale?


I have been editing these to all be the same but I am getting bored doing it.


My arrows have also developed a width factor of 2. 


Is it a standard feature that the Vert. & Horiz. arrows are different?



Cheers  John Q

I assume you are refering to the text associated with the arrows.  If so, go to the blocks for the arrows you use and verify the text style being used for the attdef's.  Make sure they are all the same and that the default styles in your drawings match.  Then, all you have to do is run update on the arrow blocks for a project that exists and all off the text will be corrected.  New projects and insertions of signal reference arrows will come in uniform and correct.
