    scale has changed to as indicated

    I had scale on my title blocks working fine but now it has changed to 'as indicated'. It looks to be because I now have a legend on the sheet. How can I get this back to normal so it only reads the view and not the legend.
    Thanks

    It is usually just reading off the views on the sheet. Check to make sure all the views, including any legends, are at the same scale.

      The legend is a different scale as we are using it as a key plan

        Any time you have multiple Views with different scales, you'll get "As Indicated"
        Other than changing your Legend to match the scale of the other View, I don't believe you can force the Sheet to a specific scale.

          We use three instance visibility checkboxes controlling the display of one label and two text boxes. Auto: displays the Scale label, plus one text element each for As Indicated and N.T.S. The user has to check the right one for each sheet.

          In fact we are trialing a new title sheet that does away with the scale figure in the border and relies on the ones in the view titles.

            I like the option to have an alternate scale text. We also make the key plan a generic annotation that is nested into the titleblock with some preset hatch areas on visibility checkboxes instead of trying to keep it a live view on each sheet.
