When I change the scale in a drawing it doesn't change in the title block ?
I use this code to get the scale: $PRP:"SW-Sheet Scale(Sheet Scale)"
Have you got 'automatically scale new drawing views' turn on?
You can also easily change the sheet scale from the bottom right of the screen.
You have selected "Use custom scale". This means that your VIEW is scaled different from the general sheet scale.
Instead change the Sheet Scale by right-click "Sheet1" and select Properties.
Number 1 annoyance when checking drawings. This occurs far to often. Must be a UI issue.
this is the right answer.
Exactly what I would like to avoid.
I want the scale to change automatically.
It is without doubt intended behavior. The sheet scale defines the scale for all main views and you have the possibility to change this scale in all main views - and title block- changes automatically. If however you want a view in a different scale (could be a subcomponent of an assembly), this odd scale should definitely NOT affect the title block.
Personally I almost always use "Use sheet scale" for my drawing views, and only rarely change the scale of one or two views. If the drawing can no longer hold the information needed I just change the Sheet Scale to something smaller and it all works great. This workflow is very convenient for me, and I am sure it will be for you when you get used to it.
I didn't know I could change it from the bottom.
Great to know.
I have always changed the scale in the drawing view, but now I realised this is not correct.
Thank you all :-)
changing the drawing scale is very naughty Unfortunately it seems to be a common method, likely due to it being the most obvious and easiest way to change the scale. Maybe the view manager dialog should include the option to change the sheet scale.

I do it occasionally, but I always attach a note that calls out the view scale.
I'm sure we all do it, I know I do. It's just a matter of making it clear it's been. I do it the same way you show.
ok.... double click on the view then create a note text box. create a link properties drop down list view scale.
hopefully this will give you a non sheet format view scale that you want
Just make it simple and add a comment "Do Not Scale Drawing" as most printers don't print within the scale factor anyway and then you'll have the guys in the shop getting out there scale ruler and making assumptions. Years ago when drawings were done by hand they were scaled perfectly, but not now..
Came across this post in an internet search for something else. I know it's an old post, but felt I should provide some input.
SCALE and DO NOT SCALE DRAWING are not related.
It is correct that DO NOT SCALE means that measuring features on the print (with a ruler) to determine a feature size is not permitted.
However, SCALE with a ratio is intended to give the person reading the document an idea for the actual size of the part.
You can find more info about this in ASME Y14.100 (section 14.23.2 in the 2004 edition)
