Assigning Annotative Scales to Supported Entities

Use the AnnEntityScale command to add and remove annotation scales for specified annotative entities.

You can assign multiple scales to annotative entities. This is referred to as scale representations.

When you hover over an annotative entity, an icon displays near the pointer. The icon  indicates that the entity currently supports only one annotative scale; the icon  indicates that the entity currently supports two or more annotative scales.

You can also remove obsolete annotation scales.

To assign annotation scales to supported entities:

  1. Click Modify > Annotation Scaling > Add/Remove Scales (or type AnnEntityScale).
  2. In the graphics area, specify annotative entities.
  3. Press Enter.

    The Annotation Entity Scale List dialog box opens. It displays the annotation scales used by the specified entities.

  4. To customize the scale list display, select an option:
    • Show all scales. Displays all scales defined in the drawing.
    • Show only common scales. Displays the scales that are currently used by all selected annotative entities.
  5. Click Add.

    The Scale List dialog box opens and displays the drawing scale list.

  6. Select one or more scales from the list and click OK.
  7. Click OK.

To remove annotation scales from supported entities:

  1. Click Modify > Annotation Scaling > Add/Remove Scales (or type AnnEntityScale).
  2. In the graphics area, specify annotative entities.
  3. Press Enter.
  4. In the dialog box, select one or more annotative scales.
