AutoCAD Dimension Text Problem


Having problems on one of my drawings with the dimension text size.

Previously occasions, I have simply re-dimensioned again.

Associative DIMS are ON

I have noticed previously too that the dims text magnifies when moving the drawing to another location on the screen.

On this occasion however, I simply opened the drawing and found the dims magnified.

I have erased other details on my drawing to make it smaller. In those cases, the dims text has shrunk.

The dim lines/ticks appear to be at the correct scale though.


All you have to do is to draw a dimension at the correct scale settings and then use DIM UPDATE on the other errant dimensions.

This is a common issue with AutoCAD in that when the dimensions were moved or stretch the current text height setting may have been changed earlier by the user.
