Solidworks electrical 2D footprint scaling issues

When inserting terminal blocks with a custom 2D footprint the Y axis size is scaled to 0.83 vs the X axis scale of 1.0. In this way the top and bottom edge of the terminal block are inline with the width of the DIN rail. In the 'drawing' attachment you can see the 1:1 ratio block on the left vs the 1:0.83 block on the right. The tags for my text are also heavily over scaled as well by at least a factor of 10 compared to the DWG drawing, i would expect the text to have the same proportions as in the block.jpg image. Is there something wrong with how i am drawing my blocks?
