@enric @fsalla
Hi, after the update text sizes on VA objects freaked out. We defined text sizes in paper space, which is in mm (model space is in m). So, e.g. a text size of 2.5, was 2.5 mm on paper, and in the model whatever the “Model space scale” in the RH annotation styles was set to. This seemed to work for VA sections and Spaces too. Now both seem to ignore the model space scale value, though in opposite ways. Please see the file attached.

Edit: May you send us a link to roll back to the previous version. This is quite critical, because we cannot print at the moment.

Hi @silvano,

The sections styles do not have any annotation style assigned, so the model space scaling is 1.0. If you set an annotation style, the scaling should be correctly applied.

Consider that the space scaling is not supported on VisualARQ objects, so the text will not scale on details. This will be implemented in VisualARQ 3.


Let me know if setting the appropriate annotation style fixes your issue. If not, I can send you a 2.12.4 installer if you are in a hurry, until we find out what the problem is.


Hi @enric Thanks for pointing out the missing Dimension Style setting. This fixes the issue. I am wondering if there was a change, because it was working for us before.
