In model space, text entities like all others have a specific size.
Depending on the scale of your plot, a particular size may be inappropriate.
The standard approach is to put scale-appropriate size text on
scale-specific layers in model space
put text in paperspace.
Model-Space is for the drawing, and Paper-Space is for text. If you're using
AutoCAD, you'd be stupid not to take advantage of this fact. You can set your
text height to whatever you want, and it will be the same on every page if you
do it correctly. In short, don't have text in model-space. Text everything
out in paper-space
The benefit of text in modelspace is so that you can change the viewport
scale without having to change the text scale? I'd rather change the text
scale ("match prop" makes real quick work of this) than have to worry about
moving all text, arrows & dimensions. Where do you put dimensions?
The only thing I put in paperspace is my titleblock (and on rare occassions,
images or schedules). I must be missing something cause I don't see a
benefit to text in paperspace.
If you are using text in model space and have a lot of notes the best thing
would be adjust your text for the scale at which you plot at. The problem
with a form of automatic text scaing is that the text placement may not suit
your drawing. ie text written at a low scale i.e 1:20 would a lot larger in
realtion to the rest of the drawing if it was enlarged and plotted at 1:00 -
requireing that you make a judgement on moving the text to another location.
text scaling on a global basis can be done simply using the global
properties bar and filters etc.
