Q - question

Globally change attribute text size.

A - answer You have scaled your drawing for printing and now you want to scale your block attributes up or down (bigger/smaller).

Use the REFEDIT or BEDIT command (editor) on your blocks to modify the text size of their attributes. Save the block editor changes. Then use ATTSYNC to perform the changes on all existing block references and resize the texts. You can also use the BATTMAN command (with the Sync option) or the old ATTREDEF.

In AutoCAD LT, you will need to perform the changes individually - with ATTEDIT.
