I’ve been using layouts more and more recently and wanted to know what the best way to manage multiple detail scales is. Lets say I am doing a plan, currently I draw the dimension strings in the model space. If the plan fits in a 1:10 scale detail, I go into the annotations options and set the annotations to scale 10x so that the text and dimension strings are proportionally the same size as they are in the detail. I then lay out all my text and dimension strings so that they are spaced nicely and line up. The problem is when I have to zoom out a little in the detail (maybe 1:15 because the plan got bigger), the text does not get smaller so they become all jumbled up if they were closely spaced before. And then for me to correct the text and dimensions I have to go back into annotation options and scale it up (15x) and re-space everything.
What is the best workflow for making technical drawings with multiple detail scales? Should I be drawing my dimension string and leaders in my layout instead of in the model space? How do I make a zoomed in detail with dimensions and text without having those dimensions and text show up on the overall plan?
