So I not proud of this method but there have been a couple of times when the recipients of what I was drawing were not going to receive or need the AutoCAD file so this method has saved me a couple of times when deadlines loomed and impatient people were waiting for my drawing….
Even after setting up a text style, I needed to make some unique text labels and so what I did instead of creating a new text style is use an existing style to create a new text onject and then scale that object. This only affects that one text object so there is no harm done.
The great things about his is that if the text size looks incorrect in a given setting, it is easily adjustable.
SCALE or SC <enter> to start the scale command
Select the text object(s)
<enter> when finished selecting
Click to specify a base point
move your cursor away from the base point to scale the text up in size.
When the text looks correct, click to end the scale command.
Note: If you want to double the size of the text, after picking a base point, enter 2 at the command line and hit <enter>. Numbers greater than 1 will increase the size of the object being scaled and numbers less then 1 will decrease the size of the objects. SO if you wanted to shrink the object to half of its size, enter .5 at the command line and hit <enter>.
