For starters, DIMSCALE is not a command, it is a variable, its value (as with all DIM variables) can be changed at the command line or better to use dimension styles. A style is a name used to identify a full set of dimension variables.


There are several ways that I would approach your problem:


1. If there all dimensions of one existing style that need this change, then edit the style.


2. If some of the dimensions of an existing style need this change then copy the style to a new one, edit the dimstyle and apply it to the required dims.


3. I numerous dims of various existing styles need this change then highlight each of the dims, open the properties pallette open the subsection called "fit" and edit to the required scale. This creates a Dimstyle Override for each of these dims


Don't use match properties unless you want to update all these dims (every DIM variable) to the same configuration
