I am working in model space and trying to apply dimensions to a drawing I created originally in AutoCAD. I plan on plotting directly from model space since these are simple drawings just for my own small building project and I don't care about title blocks and other details. I went to the dimension style dialog box and created a new dim style with a new scale but no amount of scale changing and manipulation did anything to actually change the scale of the dimension text or arrows or anything else for that matter. Is this a bug or am I not translating something over from AutoCAD correctly?

Hi Michael,
what version do you use?
What scale do you apply: measurement or object?
Did you try to select your dimensions and then change its style in Inspector?

I took me a while to discover that size of the text (a least in arial so probably all tt fonts) is not governed by "text hight" in the dimention style dialog but rather with the size of the font in the text style dialog. That seems very non-intuitive but still good to know.
