ballon text size

Hi,

 

I am new to the world of bom's, partlists & balloons

I am having trouble changing the text size of the text in the balloons.

 

Can anybody help me with this?

 

Thanks

 

Hi Leandra,

Instead of changing text height, have you thought about changing the scale like set AMSYMSCALE to 100? If you place a balloon, you should be able to see the text inside the balloon.

 

Hope it helps.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

I have tried that. I can't seem to get it higher than a size of 20.

I can't put my own size in I can only choose from what is in the drop down list.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

I have attached a picture in hopes that this will help someone give me advise.

 

This s a pdf to a scale of 1:30 & on this you can't really see the numbers in the balloon that well.

I am looking for a way that i can increase the size of the text so that it can be read at a scale of 1:100 at least.

 

I have tried changing the size as perviously mentioned but I can't go bigger then 20 & I can't pick my own size. I can only pick from what is on the list

 

Thanks,

Leandra
