Assigning the Active Annotative Scale to Supported Entities

Use the AnnEntityScaleAdd command to update annotative entities to support the drawing's active annotation scale.

To set the active annotation scale:

  1. Click Annotation on the status bar.
  2. From the list which represents the drawing scale list, select the annotation scale to activate.

    The drawing's active annotation scale displays next to the Annotation button on the status bar.

To assign the active annotative scale to supported entities:

  1. Click Modify > Annotation Scaling > Add Current Scale (or type AnnEntityScaleAdd).
  2. In the graphics area, specify annotative entities.
  3. Press Enter.

    The command reports the number of updated entities.

  Note: You can use the AnnEntityScaleAdd command only on the Model tab or in the Model workspaces on layout Sheets.
