I use extended characters quite a bit for fraction notations. The issue I have is with the text aspect of the characters. I use a text aspect of 1.5 for normal text but this is to small for the extended characters. Is there any way to set a separate aspect for the extended characters in a string of text?

You can do this with MText.

- Add an MText entity to the drawing that includes the string you want to format.
- [Ctrl] + Right-click on the MText entity and select 'Multi-line Text Properties.'
- Select the 'Format RTF...' option from the Properties Dialog.
- Format the extended characters using the RTF code for width.
Code: Select allStandard Characters - {\W2;Extended Characters}
You can read more about MText RTF codes here.
