ArcPlot "TEXTSCALE" functionality

Discussion created by acrateau on Jan 24, 2014

For those of you who remember ArcPlot,,  does anyone know how to mimic the functionality of the command TEXTSCALE using python?

I have code that makes a selection on an annotation FC in a GDB.  Now I want to temporarily re-scale the selected annotation features for printing/exporting purposes.  If this can't be done temporarily, how would I export these selected anno features to a new Feature Class or Feature Layer?  MakeFeatureLayer does not support annotation, nor does CreateFeatureClass. 

Many Thanks,   Adam
