Q - question

Wrong text size on labels in paper space.

A - answer Where can I set the point label size in Civil 3D?

Civil3D tries to keep the paperspace (layout) labels always at the set fixed height. Set your label size to the requested size for paperspace (1:1) - e.g. 2.5 mm. When you set the proper Scale factor for the drawing, also the modelspace labels will be readable. See the Toolspace palette, Settings tab - right-click on the drawing name, choose "Edit drawing settings..." and set the Scale factor (top-right corner) in the Units and Zone tab.
