How can the size of the symbols in 2d or plan view be increased  all of the switch and plug symbols

are to small when sending to layout.The layout page  is 24" x 36" the house is 8500 sq feet  so it needs 

to be sent at 1/8"= 1' to fit on page.  336536752_electricalscreenshot.thumb.png.54922318904151a306ba994e408b1470.png

It would likely be easier to get larger paper but you could open up cad block management and insert and edit the applicable cad blocks to make a 1/8" set.  Just use Transform and Replicate then re block and rename the block and re assign it to the symbol.  You may need to take note of the insertion points and duplicate them.

You could also use 1/4" scale, use break lines and show different parts of the house on additional pages.

1/4" per foot minimum scale for floor plans, no plan checker will work on that, they will ask you to put it in the proper scale, use larger paper if you need it to fit the page, 30x42 is the next size up.

I do a tremendous amount of commercial work and we use 1/8" and 1/16" scale all the time and never have had an issue with plan reviewers as long as the information is clear and readable.

On a side note, are you meeting code at your kitchen sink? If in California, you would need to have outlets within 24" of each side of the sink.
