Key Notes on top of each other in paper space

I want to scale up my paper in paper space to 20 scale. The Cst notes come in on top of one another. How do I adjust this?

It's not exactly clear to me what is happening to you. Would you mind answering these questions and checking these threads for possible answers?

1. Is the text the expected size (2 units or so)?

2. Is the spacing between lines the expected distance (3 units or 6 units or so)?

3. Please be aware of the block insertion issues discussed here: http://www.constructionnotesmanager.com ... c.php?t=27

4. Could it be a running osnap?

yes
2. Is the spacing between lines the expected distance (3 units or 6 units or so)?
no, that seems to be the issue
3. Please be aware of the block insertion issues discussed here: viewtopic.php?t=27
looked at it - set to "unitless"
4. Could it be a running osnap?
osnaps off

You may want to post an image here (it looks like attachments are allowed).

1. What is the exact text height you are seeing?

2. What is the exact line spacing you are seeing?

3. Was it working properly in model space or with some other setup?

There's a guy Craig Hendricks here who's done a lot of work with CNM. He said it's a setting in the cnm.ini file

NoteSpacing=3.5

This fixed it.

Jason,

This is unfamiliar to me. I will tell you what I know about line spacing. The distance between lines (or notes) is

LineSpacing value (or NoteSpacing value) from CNM.INI

* (times)

current DIMTXT value

* (times)

current DIMSCALE value

You might check those. Is David Wilkins here? What does he think?

Ahh. Craig is an expert with CNM. So somehow your LineSpacing was wrong in CNM.INI. May I ask what it was set to?
