I have made a family - Base Cabinets - and when looking at them in plan I want to be able to see their dimensions.  I have made an annotation family of a tag & imported that & its parameters into the family - all works great....Except I do not want the text to scale in size when I change my view port scales.  I want the text to always be contained within the 'box' of the cabinet.  If I change to a scale of 1/16" the text is then larger than the box (I dont care if it is almost too small to read).  Is there a parameter or something I can set up?  Thanks!

Have you tried using Model Text. I am not sure if you can change the value with a parameter, but the text will always stay the same height not matter what the scale.

You can always import linewrok text into a family and fill it.
