Annotation scale in Block editor

When I open a block in the Block editor, the annotationscale seems to switch to a random scale. When I set the correct annotationscale, save the block and reopen it, again the random scale is active.
Is there a way to permanently set the annotationscale for a block?

Simon, are you talking about the annotative scale attached to the text objects that are within the block or the annotative scale attached to the block itself?

Neither. Lets say the drawing is set at annotationscale 1:50. In this drawing, I open a dynamic block, so I'm switched to the block editor window. In this window, the annotationscale is set to, what seems to be, a random scale. In this case 1:1000, which makes all annotative objects fill the screen. I set the annotationscale back to 1:50 and everything is normal. Close the blockeditor, saving the changes. I reopen the same block in the blockeditor and once again, the annotationscale is set at 1:1000.

I seems logic to me for the blockeditor window to use the current drawing scalefactor, but apparantly it's not?
