Scale problems for terminals and symbols

I am adding terminals to a symbol, but they're out of scale, being larger than the symbol itself. (See atachment.) Also notice that all of my symbols are like wise out of scale until I manually adjust their scale. This is even true of the symbols that came with SWE. Of course, I'm only scaling them to fit the title block borders that came with the software.

 

I'm very accustomed to changing the scale on all my symbols since the native symbols are useless and all the ones I create tend to be either tiny or gigantic or a mile away, forcing me to "zoom extents" to go find them. What I would really like to know is is there any way to change the size of terminals? I can do this for each symbol, but I would like to edit the settings for creating each new terminal and be done with it once and for all. Or alternatively, how can you change the scale on the title blocks? They are already the same size as the field of dots that comes with each drawing, so I think that I'm going to stick with that. If anybody knows of a properly-sized set of symbols for COTS electronic components (phones, PCs, monitors, etc.) That would be worth a lot. Thanks.
