Change "as indicated" scale for multiple scales

Status: Gathering Support
by Participant iftah on ‎02-15-2017 05:28 AM

Would be great to be able to change the hard coded "as indicated" comment to something of my own choice when I have a few different scaled views on one sheet. We who work in non English speaking countries have to be able to change this to our own language...

Hi iftah,


you can do this by changing the view scale 'customise' field there are two values here one is the scale the other is the 'Display Name', you can change the 'display name' to NTS, or Varies etc. as your require.


We do this so the title block shown a scale other than 'as indicated' definitely helpful for those Key Plans where scale is irrelevant and we would like to show 'NTS' 'NOT TO SCALE'.

Hi @laurasmagin can you explain where to find that 'customize' field?

When you select the scale from the view properties under the drafting area, you can either select a pre-set scale, create a new scale or modify existing scale to report different display value, alternatively you can select from the properties pallet 'view scale' right at the top of the Graphics group.
