Symbol scale

514 Views, 3 Replies

When symbols are inserted from the tool palette (P&ID ISO), they are automatically scaled to 2.5. I would like reduce this scale in order to have more space in the drawings. The only way I have found to change this is the Edit Symbol button for each class definition in Project Setup, and this will be a big job. Is there an easier way. e.g to change the scale for all symbols at once?

Where are all the Project Setup settings stored?

Hi,

 

I believe that the symbol scale will need to be edited manually though the Project Setup. I will confirm and upde this post shortly.

 

Thanks,

Dan

Unfortunately no, the scale data is stored inside the style object inside the PSS drawing. We have an inhouse ui tool to browse through all the styles in the pss drawing and batch modify them (layers, scale and etc). You can try to have a look at the sdk documentation.

Hi,

 

The scales are stored in the ProjSymbolStyle.dwg for the project. The graphical styles are stored under NOD(Named Object Dictionary)\ Autodesk_PNP\PNP_Styles. The scale’s dxf code is 41.

 

It would require Lisp or ARX code to modify them which is not something that product support can assist with.

 

I will log a wish list with our developers to make modification of symbols easier to do for multiple items.

 

Thanks,

Dan
