Q - question

How to scale all texts in a drawing while keeping their position?

A - answer You can use the SCALETEXT command and its options Existing (existing reference point) and Scale (relative scaling factor to make texts bigger or smaller).

Please note that the text created with the alignment Fit or Align will be also scaled, so their second alignment point will change.

In older AutoCAD versions switch to the World UCS first (thanks murrayc).
