I have a surveyor supplied topo/bndy basemap. His deliverable totaled 15 sheets for the site coverage at 30' scale (C3D 2012). I can use his plans for 50' scale mappings without a problem. However, the surveyor prepared his mapping with associative text scaling for contour text, etc.
I need a 300' scale overall drainage area mapping which means the PS scaling is causing me problems. His text is way too big when I plot at 300' scale.

The text must be going to a layer. Copy all the text to a new layer. use an associative scale (but smaller) text style.
use the layer that works best for the moment and freeze the other.
Fix the new technology issue with an old school solution.
If the annotative scale thing carries through everything text related in the base map, you are going to need to probably take the second approach and determine exactly what level of detail needs to apply at 300 scale and pare the info down a bit. this may be the best choice and let the 50 scale dwgs show more detail while the 300 scale represents a skimpier overall view.
Because in reality a 300 scale drawing is not going to be used for detailed design.
The key to the second approach is to turn off automatically add annotation scales to text feature. then pick all text and pare it down to the scales you want them to appear at. A little work that will clean up things quite a bit.
