Amazing.

 

254 Views and no reply.

 

I knowit is an old post.. but have you sorted your problem out? 

 

I am trying to get rid of a duped scale definition.. I have a 1:1 scale and a tbd 1:1 (to be deleted).

 

..and I noticed that this tbd scale is stuck at the layout... So no selection is made but the it shows on Properties.

 

See picutre.

 

Anyone witha LIsp or else to help us out.

 

Thanks

Maybe because his question is not clear enough?

Change your model space annotation scale to 1:1 and use scalelistedit to delete the custom scale. Anyway, you will probably ask in the AutoCAD forum for quicker response.

Thanks for reply ...but that won't work.

 

Have you look at the picture?

 

Scale on Model space is 1:1

 

Already purged all objects.. Deleted all objects.. empty DWG dry.

 

Alos tried  using this .NET plugin from Kean Walmsley

http://through-the-interface.typepad.com/through_the_interface/2011/10/delete-all-but-current-annota...

 

.and then I realized that a Layout tab can actually have a scale set by having all un-selected and looking at Properties I could find the locked up scale.

 

And the interesting thing is that I have other layouts in this template that scales are set to correct 1:1 scale and not to bugged duped 1:1 scale (that I renamed to tbd) see picture on previous post.

 

Thanks for help.

I can only see a properties palette in you screenshot, which doesn't say anything about the scale of your model space.

 

Did it shows up on the scale list at all? Have you try reset the scale list?

Yes, that's your model space scale, tbd. What i mean is that i couldn't find where does it say 1:1 like you mentioned.

Mind to attach the drawing?

Sorry,,

 

Explaining

 

 

tbd is a renamed bad scale wit ha definition of 1:1

 

It can not be named as 1:1 because another 1:1 scale already exists in DWT.

 

Like this

Scale Name   Definition

1:1                     1:1

tbd                     1:1

I see. What the value of "CANNOSCALE"? Doesn't Resetting the scale list remove it?
