Wondering if anyone can help. The Local and Nation Validation guides for new planning apps changed on 1st June in Cornwall and now the Council are asking for Scale bars on all Plans (including elevations etc).
Is there a drawing title with a built in scale bar. I know the NCS has one in the USA however when I tried to download and open in in the UK it does not allow me to make certain changes ( remove Ciclre from the title line or amend the Title text style).
you can use UKI Scale Bar from Archicad UK Essential Library (UAS and Forward subscription users). Although it is not part of the title block object it is easy to place anywhere on layouts. The library can be accessed from here: https://Graphisoft.com/uk/downloads/uas
@Rob , if you were to add a scale bar to a Drawing Title would you be using ac_drawingScale? Does that require split to be usable? Scale interval numbers by result (or unit length). Insert into text line if required.

Thank you @Rob and apologies @Lingwisyer but I have no idea what any of that means haha. I have downloaded the American NCS Drawing title 22 and that has indeed go t the Scale Bar within the drawing title however it has limited commands. For some reason it does not allow you do the following:
- Remove the title Marker (Circle in this case)
- Alter the "Title Text Style" settings so they are locked as is
yes, you would use ac_drawingScale. it is already formatted to string so you don't have to use any unit-to-string conversion. As far as I remember this string contains just the scale value, e.g. if the drawing uses 1:50 scale, ac_drawingScale contains string "50".. but I haven't checked it. Anyway, it is easy to find out... just use simple TEXT2 command.
