I read your post very carefully a couple of times. Yes, I saw the tiny print in the dimensions originally. It’s there, but too small. I don’t think about scale very often, but shouldn’t those letters be about 3/32" tall (1:12 scale means 1"/12 = 3/32")? If they were 3/32" they would be just fine. Also, note that the arrow heads are the right size. It’s just the TEXT that’s small.
Thanks for the tip about dimensions in walls. I need to get my dimensions to snap to the section lines. I’m hoping SU 2018’s sections will allow me to do that.
I think the real problem is that LO is scaling my dimension text down for reasons I don’t understand.
Here is a new set of files:
(It was too big to attach)
This was created with LO 2017. When I open it in LO 2017 the dimensions are just fine. BUT if I load it into LO 2018, they look fine at first, but as soon as it redraws (click on Raster, then Vector) the dimensions get reduced. Even worse, it seems I can not export to PDF once it reduces the text. I guess it refuses to print tiny text.
It seems like there’s a difference between LO 2017 and LO 2018. Or maybe there’s a setting that I have different from one to the other.
This same problem was reported by someone else a few months ago with the same subject I used for this post (it had been closed out, or I would have replied to it).
I really appreciate you taking a look at this. You understand Layout a lot more than I do.
