Which settings or where do I go to set my drawing Style, Text height and line space factor on all my drawings in one shot. It is frustrating going through many drawings changing it. Please let me know.
you might use something like ScriptPro (>>>click<<<, but there are more links where you can get downloads), so you can write a script and let this run through all drawings.
>> [...] on all my drawings in one shot [...]
Are you sure you really want to have that done without looking to the drawing? E.g. Changing the font will result in changing the width of the text too ==> so some text might cross now through other geometry, will not fit in fields you have reserved, .... Especially the changes to linespacing will give a very "different" looking (only available for MTEXT, not for other text-like-objects like TEXT or attributes).

It is an in house drawing. For example, how can I make the width factor on a draiwng to be 1.00". Currently it is coming as 2.00". This means I have to go change it all the time.
The same goes for the text style. It is currently set as "Standard" but sometime I want it to be "Romant".
There must be a setting somewhere for this. Please advise how can I change it per the darwing then? Thanks you.
You set the text style settings here. Command STYLE. This should be done in your drawing templates you start new drawings with. See help information for "Qnew" templlate setting in your profile.
You always want the height set to zero in the style.
You can add styles using various fonts but if you always want standard to be Romant", simply set that shx for Standard style.
The width factor should be set to 1.
When I change the style and set it as current, nothing changes and it goes back to the previous style. How can I make the new style take effect and if possible change the old to a new style?
I change the withfactor to 0.7 but it stays 1 all the time. How should I make it to reflect the 0.7 after I change it?
Also, in addition, how can I automate the changes without clicking on the device again .
For example, my current drawing have a text with STYLE romant.shx @ 1 width fator.
I use the STYLE command and change it to 1 but it doesn't update the drawing unless I manually do it.
My question is , how can it change to 0.7 (width factor) automatically with out manually clicking on it?
I'm confused when you say you change the width & it won't stay?
A global drawing change to the font will only take place if that style exists in the drawing first. (otherwise must change the styles manually for existing text).
I'm able change the width factor of a present style & the text width factor will update. (you may have to regenall to see).
If your listing text in Properties palette that width spacing factor isn't the same setting.
The "Width factor" in the previous caption posted becomes the "Ribbon Spinner Width Factor" in mtext format options. Also created two style examples where same arial.shx font was used, same text height used. (see attached captions).
The difference in the 2 is one has a width factor of 0.50 & the other 1.00.
Exit AutoCad & reopen & they function normally & styles widths are as they were set in style dialog.
I am talking about changing the width factor in the properties palette. How can I do this automatiaclly?
If I understand correctly the width factor in the STYLE is the Ribbon Spinner Width factor. I am sorry but I've nevre use this. What's the use of it?
