Incorrect Drawing Scale on Layout

Hello,

I'm having an issue with the scale of a view placed on layout - The view is a window schedule, saved at a scale of 1:50. When placed on the layout, 100% drawings size gives a scale of 1:1, not 1:50, which causes the incorrect scale of 1:1 to show in my title bock... any ideas what's causing this? All other drawings placed on other layouts are showing correct scale - I can't figure out what I've done differently for this one...
I'm using AC22 on Mac

The scale of the schedule is determined by the scale of the
floor plan when the schedule is created.

Try setting your floor plan to 1:1.
Then save your schedule as a new view.
You'll have to resize the frames/text in the schedule
(use the "Cell Size Settings" button- Resize to fit content).

Then place the view on the layout and change the drawing's scale to 1:50.
The scale on the title should read 1:50 ( and the window should be that scale).

Probably a better way... but ?

Why on earth would they change that? I've been using AC since version 10 and never had that issue until 22... Have you read any documentation on this change? I can't think of any reason why this would be a better way to do schedules... There's literally no other instance in AC where you work in a view at 1:1, not that I can think of anyway.

Anyway, thanks for the reply, solved the problem!

No to documentation.
I had similar problem a few years back and found where someone posted
the "solution" on this board.

My workaround is unticking the 'include scale in autotexting and indexes' box of the schedule drawing and placing a second drawing with correct scale (like a floorplan, for example) outside the printable area of the layout.
