AUTO CAD TRAINING 5 - Annotation Scale ANNOTATION SCALE: Annotation scale is a setting that is saved with model space, layout viewports, and model views. When you add annotative objects to your drawing, they support the current annotation scale and are scaled based on that scale setting and automatically displayed at the correct size in model space. Before you add annotative objects to your model, you set the annotation scale. Think about the eventual scale settings of the viewports in which the annotations will display. The annotation scale should be set to the same scale as the viewport in which the annotative objects will display in the layout (or the plot scale if plotting from model space). For example, if the annotative objects will display in a viewport that has a scale of 1:2, then you set the annotation scale to 1:2. When working on the model tab or when a viewport is selected, the current annotation scale is displayed on the application or drawing status bar. You can use the status bars to change the annotation scale. You can minimize the steps to annotate a drawing by using annotative styles. Annotative text, dimension, and multileader styles create annotative objects. The dialog boxes used to define these objects contain an Annotative check box where you can make the styles annotative. Annotative styles display a special icon before their names in dialog boxes and the Properties palette. You should specify the Paper Height value for any annotative text styles you create. The Paper Height setting specifies the height of the text in paper space. Note if you have specified the Paper Height value for a dimension or multileader style, this setting overrides the text style Paper Height setting. If you redefine styles to be annotative or no annotative, existing objects that reference those styles are not automatically updated to reflect the annotative property of the style or definition. Use the ANNOUPDATE command to update the existing objects to the current Annotative properties of the style. When you change the Style property of an existing object (whether it is annotative or no annotative), the objects annotative properties will match that of the new style. If the style does not have a fixed height (the Height value is 0), the paper height of the object is calculated based on the objects current height and the annotation scale.
