global scale factors

global scale factors

global scale factors

In past versions of inroads, i've used global scale factors to set the scale of stationing and alignment annotation.  Since i've started using SS1, the global scale factor no longer has any bearing on the view geometry tools.  Am I missing a toggle somewhere or is there a new way to change the scale.  By the way, I do not have preferences set up for individual scales.

RE: global scale factors

I have been testing this out and I can not recreate it.  AFAIK nothing has changed with InRoads and the display of annotation.

Are you using the Global Display dialog? if so make sure you hit apply

Are you using the new Civil Geometry tool set in the Task Manager?  that will create some changes in workflow

More information please.
