    View Title Scale

    I recently had to set a floor plan to a non-standard scale in order to get it to fit on a sheet. I was able to get the title to say "Not to Scale" but I don't remember how. Now the plan has been revised and it will fit on the sheet at 1/16" scale but I can't get the title to list the scale correctly anymore, it still reads "Not to Scale". I am using the same view title on other views which list the scales so I don't think it is in the family. When I have the sheet active the "Not to Scale" is listed in the properties dialog but is greyed out. The project was started in 2010 but we recently upgraded to 2011. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    Did you set it to Custom? Click the scale size for the view and set it back to 1/16"...

    I did set it to custom originally but changed it back to 1/16" and the title is still reading Not to Scale.

    Sounds very strange... could you create a copy of the file, delete and purge everything besides the view and the sheet, and post the file here for review ?

    And welcome to the forum Nivek

    See Alfredo's post (#3) in this thread. I bet this is what you did.

    That is it, thanks. I knew I had applied an override but couldn't remember where.

    Thanks again.
