Removing the Active Annotative Scale from Supported Entities

Use the AnnEntityScaleRemove command to remove the drawing's active annotation scale from the entities' annotation scales.

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 remove the active annotative scale from supported entities:

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

    The command reports the number of entities from which the active annotation scale was removed.

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

Menu: Modify > Annotation Scaling > Remove Current Scale
