Dimension Font Sizes

I'm having trouble changing the font sizes in dimensions. If I right-click
on the dimension and use the editor, I can change the font but if I change
the size setting (like, from 1' to 6") the font size remains the same.

Any ideas on how to do it? Is it font-dependent? If so, what type of font
do I need to use?

Also, how do I change the font and size for the dimensions for the whole
drawing?

Thanks for your help.

If you explode the dimension, you can use the "Properties" tool button and
change the font size.

For new dimensions of a different font size, the format menu lets you choose
dimension style/annotation settings which will set the properties for all new
dimensions added to the drawing.

As far as changing the whole existing drawing dimension text size - I don't
know.

Hope this helps.

You might also try:
"format"
"dimension styles"
then change the text height to what you want,
remember to save the changes and all dimension text of that style will
change accordingly.

Thank you for your quick response. It'll be a day or so before I get to try
your suggestions, but I appreciate your help. I'll let you know how it
goes.
