Inventor: Making sketch dimension texts bigger

A - answer If the sketch dimensions are hard to read for you (are too small), you can easily make them bigger and easily legible.

The size of the text can be set in the Application options. Use the "Annotation scale" option on the "General" tab of the "Application Options" dialog (Tools > Application options). The applicable scale factor is 0.2-5.

This setting controls the size of all non-model elements in the Inventor graphical window - besides dim texts also dimension arrows, degrees of freedom symbols, etc.
