Legend Scale

Revit has just made me very cross!


I've drawn a Legend at 1:1 added it to a sheet which contains a 1:500 plan and it's made the title block show "As indicated" for the scale!


In this context I'm happy to redraw the legend at 1:500 to overcome the issue, although for the record, I think it's dumb that the scale of the legend should impinge as it has.


What if I have a series of drawings, say fire plans, at different scales all requiring the same legend?  Am I supposed to accept "As indicated" or am I supposed to create a series of legends at different scales?


Any thoughts beyond "that's just the way it works"?

"As indicated" appears when the views in the titleblock do not use the same scale. But ithis should not be a problem, since each view has its own scale shown in the View Title, anyway.


For legends, it makes sense to use another type of View Title that does not show the scale.
