if i zoom in to th grid line - the text is really it is showing just tiny.
but - I have not changed the settings in grid settings - all other files use same settings...WHY are the grid numbers defaulting to show so small in 3d View ? These are settings...

Could the fact that your Scale is 1:1 have anything to do with it?
What happens if you set the Scale to 1:100? Does it then appear at normal size?

Dear All,

I re-issue the previous thread on this topic, until I know how to delete the previous one.

Problem = Grid numbering in 3D view is so small that I cant see it, UNLESS i zoom in.

The grid numbers are there, just too small to see in 3D view.

I have to increase text size from the default 3.00mm to 30mm. Same with the marker circle - 7mm to 70mm. This is not workable. Any idea if this can somehow be scaled up?

in 2D view the grid numbering is not a problem at the default sizes ? VERY strange...?

Change the scale from 1:1 to 1/4:1
I merged both topics to this one and moved to this forum which is the closest that matches your problem.
Lazslo gave the same answer so you should try it.

LASZLO was correct....!! 1:1 killed the scale on the numbers..
