space tool question

Recommended Posts

Am I missing something but how do you change the font & font size for the label on the space tool ? I can't find a dialog box on the object info pallet regarding text size and selecting the space object and going to text in the menu bar does nothing.

Thanks,

Kurt

Hey...

There is a symbol in your RB... would look something like...

#1#

#2#

*Edit the 2D component of it in A SHEET LAYER (or a 1:1 scaled layer)*

Adjust your font settings here...

Done!

I also hate the space tool for this.

I do agree that you have more control, but sometimes, you just want to show the info smaller. Maybe they should insert the option to scale the symbol?

That was helpful, and although a bit convoluted, it is still manageable if you only deal with it once. Just another question: can you tweak the decimal places in the area field? example: my units are metros with 3 decimals on the normal dimensions, but on the space tool I'd like to have just one decimal after the point in the area calculation, can it be altered?

thanks

If you change the Units Precision to a single decimal place before drawing the Space it will stick to the Space Object after you change it back.

... But if you edit the 'Space' settings, and click 'OK'... it goes back to 3 decimal places...

I prefer to work accurately one time, as it does my head in to have measurements off by 'crazy' decimal places when it shouldn't be. I too keep 3 decimal places for length, but (try to) be as accurate as possible. Area doesn't necessarily need to be THAT accurate, and therefore I minimize my decimal places if I have them at all.
