    Electrical size

    Have been told the receptacles, lights, etc are too small and prefer larger. Using 1/4" scale on 24" x 36" drawings defaults that come w/ the program. How to best increase in size automatically, without enlarging each individual item?

    Trying to make the font size larger on door labels. I will often use the custom label, and have been told the font is too small. I use the standard default, and how best to make bit larger?

    On Layouts would like to be able to layer Off some text, while keeping other text On. For example layer / turn off Structural text on the Electrical drawing while keeping electrical text on the Electric Layout Drawing. Have seen examples on layouts sent to me. Have spent some time on, and would be helpful if someone could shed light on how best to accomplish. Thank you. .
