My company is switching to Altium Designer from OrCAD. I am setting up the new schematic page templates.

Our schematic drawings are all D-size and are often printed on 11" x 17" paper, which is half scale. Per ANSI/IEEE Std 991, line spacing that has lettering between (i.e. signal names) must be 0.2" in order to be reduced to half scale for printing.

I am finding that the standard Altium library component symbols placed on the schematic have 0.1" pin spacing. How do I set my schematic properties so the symbols have 0.2" pin spacing?

In OrCAD, this was a "Pin-to-Pin Spacing" setting under <Options><Design Template> on the "Page Size" tab. I have not been able to find such a setting in Altium, but I suspect it may be called something else.

Thanks for your time.
