I am in the process of testing Civil 3D 2012 and when I use "scalelistedit" to reset my annotation scale list, I am only getting architectural scales like 1/4" = 1'-0". My drawing units are set to feet. When I reset my annotation scale list in 2011 I am getting scales like 1" = 20' which is what I want.
Is there a new setting or command in 2012 that I should be using?
Solved! Go to Solution.
AECDWGSETUP can give you the option to change it. Type it in command line and then go into Units. Set them to Feet.
I am getting the same results with Civil 3D 2012 as you. Civil 3D 2011 does change it to Feet and removes architectural scales. Let me play with it little more and see what is going on with 2012.
When prompted to select Imperial, Metric, or both, try selecting both (Metric and Imperial Scales). You should get most of your engineering scales back when you do this.
Hope this helps!
Thanks. It looks like metric will work for my engineering scales. It just seems a little weird having to select metric.
Same here. I've got a script i've been running for the last 3 years that resets the anno scales to decimals and in 2012 it defaults to Arch Annotation Scales... Does anyone use Arch scales and units in Civil projects??? Out of the box does Revit default to decimal feet???
The fix above (selecting metric) wasn't working for me. I always guessed it was pulling the scale lists from HKLM into HKCU when you tried to reset the default list, but I'm not sure - I tried adding test entries in the many scale lists in HKLM and it never pulled them through. My workaround at present (because I didn't want to have to enter all these more than once) was just to create a registry key.
If you are using C3d 2012, you can download and double click/add the file to your registry, should replace your present entries with the engineering scales. Just keep the file handy and double click it instead of resetting the default list if you ever need to - can always reset your drawing scales using this.
