When I place text using the text placement tool and zoom out the text is very small. Is there a way to scale the text?
1. Locate the text that you want to scale and right click on it.
2. Choose the "Scale" option and move your mouse up and down until you get the text to the proper scale. Left click once to lock the scale of the text.
* Note that if the style setting in the element symbology is set to GIS style the placed text will be zoom independent like the elements and annotations in the mode, but if the style is set to CAD style the placed text will be zoom dependent. See the wiki link below for how to change the drawing style for better viewing.
