 I am trying to draw some domestic plumbing into the model and when I come off the top of a main for a branch pipe I am getting the 3/4 circle drop symbol. This is fine, but the symbol appears to have about a 6” radius which is rather large for a 1” pipe on an 1/8” scale plan. I would like to cut that in half.  I have highlighted the fitting, clicked edit family, and yet once I get into the elbow fitting I can find no evidence of this schematic plan view symbol in the family. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

You can go to your mechanial settings, click on the pipe settings, rise drop single line symbology and you will see uder setting there will be Pipe Rise/ Drop Annotation Size and you can change the value there to make it smaller or bigger.  Be careful though it will change it throughout the entire project, so you might have to play with it a little to make it look good across all scales.

Thank you for your help. I assume you are refering to the "Pipe Fitting Annotation Size". We took your advice and tried changing that number. We tried larger and smaller and yet the elbow symbol does not change. We also tried unchecking the radio button that says "Use annotation scale for single line fittings" but that made no difference either way. I should not that if we do change the drawings annotation scale the symbol does change (even when the radio button is unchecked). My thought is that there must be something else that is overriding this. We tried different pipe types thinking that may be the issue, but they all had the same issue. I have attached a photo of what I have done.

Close, but click on the Rise Drop, Single line symbology just below, that scale is different from your pipe settings.  Your pipe settings will be for your elbows and tees and fittings alike.  The Rise Drop is not associated with the pipe settings annotation size, they are seperate.

Sorry, just click on the rise/drop and change the scale there.
