Changing the scale assigned to annotations

In this lesson, I'm going to show you how to fix a problem that many beginning students run into, when they start using Annotative Styles, and that is, what do you do if you've already annotated your drawing and you find out you've used the wrong scale? On my screen, I have a mechanical example, and this drawing contains several annotations. If I hover over these, you can see they were created using an Annotative Style. Now all of my annotations were created using an Annotative Scale of 1:1 because I made the assumption that my drawing would fit on the sheet at that scale.

Let's take a look at our Layout. This is a standard 11-17 inch sheet and this layout contains a Viewport. I'm going to open up the Layer Control, and I'll turn Layer Viewport on. I will then double-click to get in the Viewport and I'll do a Zoom Extents, so I can see my geometry. Now let's set this Viewport to a measurable scale. I'll open the Viewport Scale fly-out and I'll sele...
