    Multiple viewports - cant individually scale

    Hello,
    Im trying to add a viewport to an existing sheet which I want to scale differently, however every time I bring the view in and place it on my sheet and change the scale, everything else changes with it, it wont let me do it on its own, I assume somewhere a box is checked but as its not my RVT file I dont know what Im looking for and Im fairly new to Revit, I've managed it at home on my own full student version 2018 but cant seem to manage it on the works 2019 Lite version - can anyone help.
    Cheers

    What do you mean by "everything else changes with it"?
    That's the way Revit scaling works. All of the Annotation scales together.
    Or, perhaps you mean all of the other Views on the Sheet change scale too?
    IF that's the case, that tells me you're changing the scale in a View Template, not an individual View. If that's the case, you can either change that View's View Template to None, or uncheck the box next to Scale in the View Template

    Hi again
    Ive tried that and it doesnt work unfortunately, what Im trying to do is create a different view of the same floor plan (which is on a view template) but at a different scale and its proving very difficult, can you offer any assistance.
    Cheers
    Dave

    Sounds like the view may have been created as a "Dependent View"
    Try selecting the view in the Project Browser then "Right Click" then select "Convert to Independent View"

    Ive even just tried to create a new template from the current view after highlighting the view in red and greying out everything else but that didnt work, Im baffled?? Is it to do with the fact its the same floor plan?

    Did you already try the solution that Mark_B proposes? ;

    I guess you can create a brand new copy of that view and try to remove all view templates, check if isn't a dependent copy as suggested above
