What model space scale should default Rhino V7 be?

Please someone,
I AM UNABLE TO START WITH V7.
I HAVENT A CLUE IF ITS MODEL SPACE SCALE SHOULD BE 1 OR 10.

RhinoV5 came with Model Space Scale (MSC) 10 and I went with that, to be told years later by Pascal its responsible for dims being microscopic in V7
If I alter dims styles for MSC in V5 to 1 all is ok, when file then opened into V7. all except for text gap which it will NOT HONOUR…

Pascal and Jeremy in

said make my V5 dims styles model space scale 1, so a text height 0.01 would then be edited to 0.1, arrow length 0.01 would be edited to 0.1 and so on.
I do this and now dims are visible in V7.

If I create a NEW file in V7 I see its model space scale is 10 !!!

furthermore to add to my bewilderment there is now an additional ‘adjusted text height’ 1.25

ye gods.

I want text 0.1inch tall, if I am in 1:1 scale as I wish to always work, I need model space scale 1 and text height 0.1, surely thats correct.
why do I have to work out what the height should be with a 1.25 factor to get 0.1inch tall ?
can I ignore that 1.254 inch as that aplied across many dim styles from V5 is going to be hell.

why cant we have model space scale 1 and text hight 0.1 for 0.1 inch tall text ?

here we go again. :weary:

If I leave it as that and open V5 into it, having altered V5 dims styles to MSC 1 whats going to happen ?

This is doing my head in.

I AM UNABLE TO START A PROJECT IN V7 UNTIL I KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON PLEASE.

  1. should I alter all dims styles of V5 to MSC 1 ? (it allows dims to be right size in V7)
  2. This means surely that V7 MSC is 1 yet a new file sees an inbuilt MSC as 10. just as V5 was. :weary:
  3. why is text gap not working as expected ? see images above.

WHAT SHOULD A DEFAULT V7 INCHES SMALL OBJECT FILE DIMS BE …MSC 1 OR 10 ?
so as to not be told for V8 that V7 had a bug and was set to MSC 10 !

just as I am being told V5 should not have been MSC10.

Having imported a mesh into V7 to start my use of V7 I have had to delete the file and exit V7 as I havent a clue on what dims styles should be set to in V7 and how to continue/bring in my dims from V5 with their now MSC 1 styles used in V5 giving 0.1inch tall text and text gap as was.
