    don't worry about Alan and his hate for X-refs - as soon as he sees the word X-ref he immidiatly jumps high and blames everything that happens afterwards on the x-refs....

    I place my scale on one place, and one place only. As a scale on the Viewport itself. Everything else is drawn 1:1. Period.

    I have Viewport Toolbar out and when I have the Viewport highlighted I can set the scale of it on the toolbar. Then I lock it faster than you can say 'external reference' .

    0.001 is the scale factor used to convert from millimetres to metres.
    this could explain why your viewport scale and model space are going a bit haywire. this can happen now and again.

    How about some screen shots of the Plot Manager and some of your Viewports?
