Can you scale Sketchbook elements to different paper sizes?

Postby GSpess » Wed Sep 19, 2018 12:33 am

The issue I'm running into is that drafting in Arch D, all of the scrapbook items come out much smaller than would ever be useful on such a size of paper. See example here - https://imgur.com/a/HLs56LI

Is there a way to pre-set them to a size appropriate to Arch D? As scaling them keeps the text like a 4pt text.

Sure, you can scale the scale to the size that is appropriate for the scale of your drawing and then set the font size so it's suitable. If you're going to use that paper size frequently, scale up the various scrapbook items you'd use and make your own new scrapbook for them so you only have to do it once.

It certainly is a shame within layout that a modifier key on scaling doesn't scale all content within an object!
