I was wondering how the Dimension tools determine what the size of a object is that its dimensioning. So if you have a drawing that has 3 scales on it. How does the Dimension tools determine what scale to Dimension at? We just ran into this situation and are a little lost? Mark

The dimension tools look at the "viewport scale" and determine the scale value to apply to the dimensions.

That's what I thought. Is there a way to override this? To have it dimension at a different scale than it does by default. Due to us Stacking our Viewports?

Sorry Mark, for release 1 of DWF Composer you don't have the ability to override the dimension scale if the scale has been published into the DWF. AutoCAD has been publishing the scale into the DWF since I believe ACAD 2000. I know it's on the wishlist for the next release.
