Title Block/Field Not Working as it Should


Recommended Posts



I'm new to the site so I'll try and be as clear as possible!


I am creating a new title block for my office. In the new block I am using fields to limit the amount we have to fill it out. This has worked well with the exception of getting the viewport scale to work properly. I have visited just about every forum on the internet to see how to make this work and all i can discover is that I don't appear to be doing anything wrong.


So my question is this.


I am using a field in a title block that links to a viewport to give its custom scale value. ie the viewport is set at 1:100 then in the title block says that the scale shown in the drawing is 1:100. If I have to change the scale in the viewport to 1:50 then i can regen my layout and my title block will now say that the scale shown in the drawing is 1:50. Like Magic!!


However this is not working for the scales 1:5, 1:25 & 1:200. Instead of the scale the field in the block just says "CUSTOM". Does anyone know why and how i can fix this? It makes no sense to me and works with all the other scales that we use.



Thanks in advance :)

It sounds as though you've specified that scale when setting the viewport's 'zoom', but that you've not added the suspect scales to your scale list... Can you post a drawing, or screenshot?

Change Format to None.


Do a Regen after changing the viewport scale.


Try it. I'll wait.


BTW...I got it to work in my test drawing.

i work in mm. the suspect scales are apart of my scale list. I've set it to none before with the same unwanted result but i will try again and get back to you in a mo.
