I was wondering how to change the size of font on my weld symbols. All that I get out of the dialog box is a text style but changing that doesnt do anything. I just need to make the font size bigger for the weld size as well as the proceeding font. I have heard that there is a default somewhere where you can change it but I cant seem to find it. Let me know. Thanks

Hi Selma,

 

The text size for various elements can be changed in the (GAM) Graitec Advance Manager from the Drawing-Labeling on the Text. The text size for the weld symbols is not listed. You can find the weld symbol in the folder: C:\ProgramData\Graitec\AdvanceSteel\2010\Shared\Support\Symbols. Once you open the drawing you can then change the text height using the BEDIT command.

 

Best regards,

 

Janet Black

Can you be a little more specific on the file?

There are over 800 DWG's in that file and I dont really want to look through all of them to find the welding symbols.

Also, are you saying that there is no actual setting for it and its only in the DWG's?

As mentioned previousl,y text size for various elements can be changed in the (GAM) Graitec Advance Manager, however the text size for the weld symbols are not listed. See picture below.

The weld symbol drawings for example of a staggared weld would be "FilletLower2Long.dwg and also dsc_d_w.....dwg. Open the symbols folder through the Advance steel and you will see be able to see a preview of the selected weld type.

That worked! For some reason, my fillet weld wont change though. The rest of them are good. Another question - how do I change the size of font on my proceeding information?
