Scale in PM & AC

It has been said to draw in your normal scale in AC such as 1/4" then to change your output scale in PM as you need it for the different size drawings such as D or tabloid. This seems fine until you update a drawing, then PM reverts the AC drawing back to its imported scale and ruins your newly scaled output CD booklet.
After building a set of CDs to the output scale you want should you disconnect the link?
What is your favorite method of building CD's in PM to get proper scale?

In ArchiCAD 8.1/Plotmaker 3.1. You have the choice to read prefs from you ArchiCAD file or let Plotmaker decied the sacle, pens&colours and layer combos. These new functions are all very handy.Plese see my post at http://archicad-talk.graphisoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=198&highlight=
