I know about this, but I am looking for a way to give the size in the same kind of coordinates we use for other graphics objects, and not coordinates that depend on the plot range. Consider the following example: A = Text[Style["A", FontSize -> Scaled[0.4]], {0.5, 0}] circle1 = Circle[{0, 0}, 1] circle2 = Circle[{-2, 0}, 1/2] These two graphics look different even though they contain the same objects: Graphics[{circle1, A}, Axes -> True] Graphics[{circle1, circle2, A}, Axes -> True] I would like to fix the size of that letter "A" in a flexible way, so that I won't have to keep the PlotRange constant in order to keep the relative size of the text and circle constant.
