Correcting Scale With Callouts or Labels

Issue

Your callouts are scaled incorrectly in relation to the rest of your drawing. (That is, some or all of your callouts are too big or too small.) This issue can affect any type of callout, such as:

 

 

Solution

Are your plant labels, Reference Notes callouts, or mainline and lateral size callouts scaling incorrectly? If so, these callouts may be sized incorrectly because of a font size issue. Please see our steps to correct scale with plant labels, RefNote callouts, and mainline and lateral size callouts

 

1. Delete all incorrectly scaled callouts and labels, and type PRG into the Command line to Purge them completely from the drawing.

 

2. Follow our steps to verify your units

 

3. Confirm the drawing scale and units using our Scale tool.

 

4. Follow our steps to fix the DWG units in your drawing.

 

5.  Open the actual label files in question (both -L and -R) to compare them and make sure that one is not larger than the other.

 

If you need to rescale a site callout, Discipline Graphic, or plant label, please follow our steps to rescale these items.

 

6. Place the callout or label in your drawing. It should now insert at the correct size.

To avoid this issue in the future, maintain a separate CAD template file for each unit type.
