Is it possible to change Room Label and Text Size from Layout View?

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon all, I have a floor plan of a 12,000 S.F. commercial building at 1/8" scale. The text fits perfectly and looks good in this layout. However, when I do a detail of the bathroom at 1" scale, the room labels and text are GIANT. What is the simplest way to change the text size to be uniform at printed size regardless of the scale? Or do I have to create new layer sets and draw new dimensions and text boxes manually? Thanks.

Change Your text style, define appropriate label style for your scale. If you have 6" Room Style for 1/4", you may want to define RoomStyle 1" style to be 2.5".

@BrownTiger This has pointed me in the right direction. Do I have to have two separate text boxes on two different default sets for two different scales? Or can I simply scale the text size from the layout?

NO

 

You should be using PlanViews....Let's say you have Kitchen and Bath PlanView that is linked to NKBA 1" (kitchen and Bath layerset).

In that layerset click on room label, hit Text style, define >> Copy >> Name new style: Room Label Style 1"

In that style specify let's say font size: 2".

 

Now if you return to Working Plan view your label will be in "Room Label Style" and in NKBA it will display as Room Label Style 1".

 

Send each plan view into your layout.
