PS: marker size of dimensions only go down to 0.5? while the text can go down to 0.1? why is this...any option u know?


You need to read the rest of this thread to see why this is a bad idea, and learn about how ArchiCAD by default scales text in a way that it appears at the same output point size regardless of the drawing scale... (but you can make it follow model units too)... You really want to avoid doing much of anything on the layout other than placing drawings and images. Everything else belongs in model views or workspaces.
