CAD Blocks with Text added to the Library

Recommended Posts

If you create Text and set it to "Use Text Style" and then create a Block with other CAD Objects and add that to the Library .....

 

The Text displayed in the Library will not be "to scale" with the rest of the graphics.  OTOH if you set the text to "Use Layer for Text Style" or "Use Custom Text" it will be "to scale" with the rest of the graphics. 

 

This is something that I never figured out before and was very frustrated when I found a CAD Block in the Library that had a mess of Text and I couldn't see what the #@&! it was supposed to be.

Thanks for the info Joe.  I know I've had issues with text and CAD blocks in the past as well.  You may have very well pointed to the culprit.
