    Scale

    Hello to everyone,

    I am at the moment updating the sheet template of my company. The issue is related to the scale of the drawings that i am relating at the legend. In the picture you can see the name "ESCALAS" its scale in portuguese, my native language. In the front of "ESCALAS" is label named "Indicadas" it means indicated in the current drawing of the project. What I would like is that the "Indicadas" or "Indicated" actually show the scales of the drawing that I have on the sheet that I am currently presenting.

    Best regards

    It will only show the scale IF there are/is ONLY viewports with one scale. As soon as you have viewports with different scales, it will show 'as indicated' and you have to use the view title to indicate the scale.

    Hi ppatricio as Kamran already said that text will show up automatically when you have multiple scales in your sheet, I've already faced the same issue and what I'm doing here is to put another "Label" with a visibility parameter and a simple yes/not formula which allows me to control the text since here in France the "As Indicated" text is not useful, see image, that way you can write you own text or as in my case put manually the main scale, hope this can help you! best regards

    Only one viewport ? You may have a legend placed on the sheet: they also have a scale and if the legend's scale is different from the viewport, it will return a 'as indicated' label.

    A rule of thumb for my Legends are to always scale them per what my Main plans will be at (either for overalls, partials, or enlarged). That way my sample graphics/Legend Elements will always align to the referencing scale.

    Perhaps there is another view on the sheet at a different scale, which is hidden?

    If you expand the sheet name in the Project Browser it will list all of the views on the sheet. That would help to identify if there is a view that is hidden or placed outside the sheet extent.
