Title: What are steps to clean up annotative mess
Post by: hobleglobsquishyworms on June 15, 2019, 03:34:58 PM
Drawings I'm working with have a ton of problems.  The scale list is bad in the drawings, the annotative scales are wrong, some use "1:40...xref", in 30 scale drawings, etc.  The objects themselves often have all the scales in them except the ones that in in files that xref them. Just a bunch of problems. 

We typically don't use / need annotative scales so I'm trying to figure out how to fix them.  I thought the first step would be to use a routine to reset the drawing scales and scale list. Then the next step would be a routine to reset all the scales of all the objects to the actual drawing scale.   When I do that though a lot of the annotative scale blows up to hundred's times bigger.  Anyone know the proper procedure, or have a procedure to clean up stuff like this?

Thanks!

I've not had to do it on a large scale but starting with removing the annotative property first should get all the objects to the current displayed size. Cleaning up the scales after that should go smoothly.

Makes sense. Thanks Rob!
