Revision tag

Hi,

 

I'm looking at a way to reduce the size of the revision tag in inventor, cause its size doesnt fit in our drawings, we have the habit to put as much info **** possible on the sheets but when we get a revision the tag is too big..

 

 Is this possible?

 

Currently using Inventor2012 & soon will be using 2013

 

Greetings.

If I recall correctly, the size of the tag is directly proportional to the text size.  It leaves too much white space, in my not-so-humble opinion, so the tags look huge, but they work fine otherwise.  To reduce the size, edit your library/template style and set the text smaller.

Well if I remember when you tag lets say one revision with a 1 or A depending on what you do and then you make another revision and it is a 2 or B the 1st tags you put will also change to a 2 or B and it should not they should stay the revision they were. And in the description part the text wrap don't work right so it can cut off words li

ke this.

 

So with all the time it takes to make it right was not worth it.
