Title Block Setting Updating scale question

Question

It seams that when I  use this button I get a 1:48 engineering type scale instead of the standard fraction in an architect scale 1/4"=1'-0".  

 

I don't know why it doesn't match what is shown as my scale in the viewport.  See attached images

 

1- What I see

2-What I want

3-Viewport

Hello @MartinFahrer,

 

The TBB is displaying the paper scale of the layer (respectively the custom scale fo the Viewport) which is always in this format.

 

Anyway, as this seems to be important feature for you and other users, we will investigate if it could be done the way you want it.

 

Best Regards,

Nikolay Zhelyazkov

That would be great! Architect scale is traditionally represented in the form of a fraction ie - 1/4"=1'-0".  Standard for all my drawings going to construction since hand drafting.  It's an architectural graphic standard, as referenced in the attached image below from  Ramsey/Sleeper's first edition Architectural Graphic standards circa 1932.
