Paper Scale - Scale Text


Recommended Posts

When changing the layer scale there is the option of "Scale Text" under the "Paper Scale" title.

The following macro asks the user what layer scale they would like and changes all layers with a scale the same as the active layer to the new scale.

How can I modify this to keep the text size as per the original point size?

procedure Layer_Scale;


hL : handle;

LayerName : string;

NowScale, NewScale : real;

LayerCount, i : integer;


hL := ActLayer;

LayerName := GetLName (hL);

NowScale := GetLScale (hL);

NewScale := RealDialog ('Layer Scale : ', Num2Str (2, NowScale));

LayerCount := NumLayers;

Layer (GetLName (FLayer));

hL := ActLayer;

for i := LayerCount downto 1 do


if (GetLScale (hL) = NowScale) then

SetLScale (hL, NewScale);

if (i <> 1) then

hL := NextLayer (hL);


Layer (LayerName);


run (Layer_Scale);
