custom tag

I had my new diffuser tag all worked out. Exploded an air terminal device tag, moved things around, change text styles, changed layers from 0 to G-anno-std-text-tag .  I did the definetag command and when I select the insert point, the tag goes to about 1/10 of it's size.

Is there a variable that I accidently turned on that is rescaling the tag as it is beign created?

Before you redefine the tag, you need to make sure that your annotation scale is set to 1:1 and that your text is non annotative and set to 1" tall.  This will make it appear correctly once you create a tag.

Thanks. That was the problem.
