Hello everyone!

hmmmm... when I scale my project  1:100, the grid's tag become too big! I would like to modify the "amount of increasing" related to the scale. How to figure it out?

Thanks.

the grid size isnt view specific which means that it doesnt change size when you scale the view it always remain with same size ( the printed size on paper will always be the same ) and that works perfectly for consistentcy , that on all the package the grids will always have the same size , so choose the size 1 time and make sure thats the desirable size you need to be printed,

Hope this helps and here is a similar thread with same topic :

hmmm.. I'm sorry Elnazer2, I don't realize. You say: "it doesnt change size when you scale the view". So, why I'm experiencing the opposite? That is, when I change the scale, the grid's tags enlarge or become smaller (as for text or dimensions)... and this affects the print too?!

no what i mean i doesnt change size ( Scale ) is that it have the same printing size ... what i mean if you use a grid type for a 1:100 plan and used the same grid type for a 1:200 plan and put both on the same sheet , both grids will have the same size , actually when you change scale only the model elements are Scaling and grids ( dimensions , spot elevations , ....etc all annotations ) stay with the same size while everything else is smaller thats why it appears like grids are bigger .

Ahhhhhhhhhh! Ok, ok! Now, I understand.

Then, to modify the size of the tags, I can only modify the family? For Dimensions, for example, there are much more parameters editable directly within the project than for Grids.

if you are using the default grid family you can modify it from the project browser , go to the project browser >>> find under families >>> annotations >>> your bubble Grid Family ( the deafault one is called (M_grid head) , open the types inside of it , right click on the one you want to change and go to type properties .

Noting that Changing the bubble size will change the printable size , which is in all views .
