Question

On the Title Block Settings Manager, we now have the 'North Point facility. Could we also have an automatic Scale Bar tool, related to the scale of the viewport on the sheet layer.. In the UK every planning application needs scale bars on the drawings so this would be useful...

Hello Lee

 

There is a scale bar tool on the annotations palette.  Bear in mind the scale bar does need to be either on the annotation space of a sheet layer viewport or on a design layer.

I do believe the request is more for the unsexy programming task of expanding "Drawing Co-ordination" to get titleblock to understand what viewports are within their boundaries and automatically updating the Titleblock fields to suit.

 

Including say having a standard drawn scale bar in our TB symbols and have them update to.

One less thing to get missed in the rush would be very handy.

It would be great to have the ability to "program" the style as a function of the viewport scale - generally I look for 2 minor divisions at 1/2 the viewport scale and 1 major division at 1X the scale It would also be great to have a check box to show viewport scale text below the scale bar  "Scale: 1"=10'-0") same as is possible on viewport labels... Viewport labeling may now be possible with a tag?
