Bill of Material generation scaling problems

Hello,

 

Have had this problem for a while, but i have solved it by copying the model to a file i know the BoM generation works but now i want to fix it for a new project.

 

The problem is, when adding a BoM table in the automatic drawing choices, my table scales down the letters to about 1/10 of the "correct size". I have not changed any settings for this, but now when i do want to change it I cant seem to find the options for this.

It seems like i am not finding the correct options, does anyone know where to make these changes so my tables can look normal and actually be useful? I have attached two PS.

 

Thanks in advance.

/Filip

Might be used alternative text style in the table. Try with standard one.

Yes, i thought of that. Problem is, in the scrolldown window i cant choose rbcs_tab font, dont know why it has disapeared. Is there a way to change the settings for just tables styles back to default without changing everything back to default (dimension, description styles etc)?

 

Edit; I might clarify that clicking the "default" box in tables style does nothing as far as font or style "RBCS_tab".

Is "RBCS_tab" text style lost from this file only?

If so, did you try to import (update) table style via ASD center from another file?
