Subject: Setting up annotation scaling

Annotation scaling allows you to control individual entities so their size will consis­tently display when a drawing is displayed or printed at different scales. You don’t have to use annotation scaling, but it is a convenient way to control the scaling of the following entities: text, tolerances, dimensions, leaders, multileaders, attributes, hatches, and blocks.

These individual entities can be annotative, and so can text styles, dimension styles, and multileader styles; text, dimensions, or multileaders assigned an annotative style will have annotation scaling turned on by default.

CADdirect comes ready to use annotation scaling, however, you may want to cus­tomize some of the settings according to your needs.
