Anyone know if there any way i can change the font type for the hole chart? Currently i am using a template whereby the hole chart is created using the BSI standard. I am looking way to change the table font style.

Hi,

 

In order to change the font type, you may need to create a Custom standard using following steps:

 

  1. Open the drawing
  2. Create a new text font type using style command.
  3. Command options>AM:smileyfrustrated:tandard tab
  4. Under “Standard” Key in any name (Custom) and press Enter key
  5. Click OK
  6. Double click Hole Chart node under standard elements
  7. From the Text Style dropdown>>Select the text style created in step-2
  8. Click OK
  9. New Hole charts created will use the new text style.
  10. For existing Hole charts>>double click Hole chart in the drawing>>Settings>>change the text font type.

Hope this helps

 

Thanks

As you said, there is no other way to change hole chart text font. You have to change text style from the standard. As you know, all the text style is controlled by the standard which the dwg is using.

I try before to change the text style as mention is Step 10, but just that the button is in "grey" color and can't let me to choose other fonts.

 

I have attach a photo and a sample of the drawing for your reference.

Did you create a custom standard before trying Step-10?

 

In the attached drawing, I created a custom standard.  Now the Text Style can be changed by double clicking the holechart in the drawing.

 

Thank,

You may remove custom standards using AMSYMSTD command.

 

Please note that; if a custom standard is current/active or if any objects are inserted based on this custom standard, then we cannot remove the standard.
