Tag Scaling improperly


Posted (edited)

Don't know if anyone has run into this issue before, however, data tags with text for some reason scale differently than symbols do. From what I understand, data tags scale at page scale, where as symbols scale at world scale. When I take a symbol, and at 1:1 scale w/ size 10 text, the true size of the text inside symbol at 1:10 would be 1 instead of 10. Data tags automatically adjust its size based on text size according to design layer scale, and as a result cannot be truly scaled based on its world size. Is it possible to give  data tag a world scale so that the text would adjust based a 1:1 ratio in the design layer view port irregardless of the design layer view port scale?
