    Default Resizing Origin Planes - Inventor 2011

    Is there a way to make Origin Planes smaller once they are Auto-Resized? When I select the Plane in the Browser, small circles appear at the corners of the Plane, but I can't seem to grab them.

    Thanks for your help.

    Regards,

    No. After planes are set to "auto-resize", you can not change the plane sizes unless you turn off "auto-resize" function.
    You can change the plane size by stretching the small yellow circle at the corner of the plane.

    When I select the Plane in the Browser, small circles appear at the corners of the Plane, but I can't seem to grab them.
    The size of small yellow circles at the corners of the planes are not reflected to the size of the the planes and can not be resized on the screen.

    The small yellow circles CAN be resized by going to Tools>Application Options>General tab and changing Annotation scale.

    I've turned off the "auto-resize" and I'm still not able to grab the circle to change the plane size. Anyone have any suggestions/comments?

    Thanks

    I realised that you are talking about the planes in assemble file.
    Am I right?
    If this is the case, you cannot "grab" the planes in the asemble level, unfortunately.
    This is something beyond the inventor.
    I have checked the "options" and found nothing can be done for this.
    Maybe someone else has a tip or simply wait for next version?

    In order to size the plane to what you want, you need to activate the part you are creating the plane from and THEN create your plane. At that point you can use those circle grips to move or resize as you so desire. Took me awhile to figure this one out.
