[SOLVED] Change welding symbol size

Postby mickele » Thu Apr 09, 2020 7:37 am

I would like to change welding symbol size, sometimes it's too big compared to text.

Is there a variable I can set to change its size?

There is a scaling factor for the symbols:
Tools > Edit parameters> Preferences > Mod > TecDraw > Decorations > SymbolFactor

Add the parameter if it is not there. The default is 1.25 if the parameter is not found, so you'll want
to set it to 1.0 or maybe even less to make smaller symbols.

I'll add this to the preference pages.

SymbolScale parameter should be available on tab 2 of preferences after git commit b2a7cb9303
