How do i change the view scale in the layout tab in AutoCAD Map 3D

i already know how to change the view port scaling from 1:1, to 1:10, to 1:20, and so on but my real issue is someone before me change the view scale from 1:1 to 1:.808XXXXX. when i print my figures from the layout everything that is not in the viewport ( like my scale bar) come out shorter that it is on the the screen in paper space. Ive tried to change it back to 1:1 but it wont accept it and keeps the .808XXX value.Any ideas to help steer me in the right directions?

Hi,

 

start command _PAGESETUP to edit the plot-settings for this layout and then look to the plotscaling, the values should be 1 and 1 (for the number fields) like that:
