also is there a way to adjust the grid as to where Acad changes a wire nuimber
I use a grid of 1/2" between numbers and Acad numbers to the above line number 1/4" below that line and then 1/4" above the next line number, if you get right in between the two Acad will swich back and forth between the line numbers causing my wire and component numbers to change between projects, I would like Acad to number to the above number untill on the next line
The wire numbers and tags are assigned within an approximate range of halfway between line reference numbers up and down. In other words, think of the line reference as resting in the middle of the range it controls. So halfway between 101 and 102 is where 102 begins, while 103 starts about halfway between 102 and 103. I don't think there is an adjustment for this range. But you can edit a wire number and mark it fixed to force it to be whatever number you wish. Automatic wire numbering will affect no change on a fixed wire number.
Note: I recommend to avoid Feature Scale Multiplier settings above 2 or below 0.5. This can have adverse affects on wire numbering, cross-referencing, etc. The FSM is a great feature for doubling the size of symbols or half-sizing them, but not for English to metric scale conversions. The trap distance gets too coarse and this can cause problems with tagging and cross-referencing. I have even seen it cause issues with sequentially numbered terminal blocks that are in close proximity.
