  1. Thank-you for doing that but it still doesn't change the font size. However I just figured out how to change it, if I go into my site plan and select the terrain perimeter. Which is using the plot plan text style, then go into define, click edit and change the character height int the plot plan text style it changes the size in the Auto Story Pole...even though my Auto Story Pole is saying it using the 1:50 Text Style.....how in the heck does that work.
  2. I switch through all the available text styles and it doesn't change the text size in the cross section. Whether I choose 1:25 or Plot plan text style the font size on the cross section stays the same..
  3. Thanks for the reply that changes the dimension number size but not the text size. How to I get the font back to a normal size, I had it properly and somehow somewhere I have done something to a setting that has changed it.
  4. Can someone please tell me where the Auto Story Pole text size is controlled from, not the dimensions size but the actual text. TIA for any help.
  5. Yes the base is level I still was hoping to put footings into it and then have the retaining wall as a separate layout for design page. but may have to do it separate. I will try making the straight section into a symbol and rotating it and see what happens, nothing bad I'm sure.
  6. Here Is what I am working with, I just need to get those post's to lean back into the terrain on that -6 deg
  7. I would like the posts as individual items that I can resize as required to suit the slope of the terrain.
  8. Yes that works great, is there now a way to turn that square post into a round one?
  9. Ok I am almost there. I now have a square post on the right angle (-6 deg) is there a way to now convert that square post into a round post? Selecting the top of the post in the working plan doesn't allow break line tools to be used once its a polyline solid. The other thing is I would like to create the post's as individual items in the library as the retaining wall changes heights over its length so being able to individually size the posts to suit the terrain is helpful. Thanks for the great replies so far
  10. Is there a way to angle the polyline solid to -6 deg?
  11. 3D I want to build the wall in 3D place it in the terrain properly like a normal retaining wall, but on a -6 deg angle.
  12. Hi All Having to design a retaining wall for my build, engineer requires -6 deg angle to be applied to the posts for the retaining wall. Does anyone have a creative way to do this, need a post with a footing on a -6 deg angle. If the powers that be are reading this why oh why can you not put an angle on framing posts I can think of lots of reasons to want to do this without trying to muck about with the Soffit tool to bodge it. TIA for any help
  13. Hi All Just quickly where are the different plumbing lines hiding. For e.g. if I create a plumbing legend it has the storm drain line with the little 's' in it but when I create a CAD line there is no option to convert the CAD line into a storm drain line..
  14. Hi Glen Thanks for the reply I have tried the change color option and it doesn't achieve what I want, although it means I can change the color for each different layer set the Hatch style and fill/ line transparency are still set by that original setting and the only later change is the color. The polyline idea has worked well so will stick with that, Thanks again.
  15. Now Now that's a great idea, problem solved. Thanks v-much.
