Custom Scales

137 Views, 1 Replies

Why can I not delete certain custom scales (created by others) when I look at the Viewport Scales whilst in Model veiw of the layout tab.


eg I have a drawing that has a custom scale of 111 and even though I reset the scales to metric it will not budge.


So every time I plot my drawing I have to change to 1:1

I have made a new page set up and saved it but it always reverts to this.

No xrefs attached to the drawing

Most likely SOMETHING is using that scaling value (viewport? text?)


To get the plot scale to be 1:1 as the default, do the following:

1. Enter the command SCALELISTEDIT,

2. In the dialog box, select the 1:1 scale factor

3. Click the "Move Up" button until 1:1 is at the top of the list
