    creating a template with drawing scales


      I am creating a template for an architecture office. We need to have a drawing scale on most pages so I would like to include one in the master. However, the drawing scale changes according to the drawing on each sheet. Basically, we need to be able to choose between a set of scales on each page. I'm picturing a drop down menu where I can load each file and choose which ever is needed. Does such a thing exist? Has anyone run into a similar situation and come up with another solution?


      Thanks for your help!

          Not like that, but if you were to anchor each scale in a paragraph, you could potentially use conditional text to show and hide different ones. The limitation for that is conditional text is global so it's the whole file, not a page-by-page choice. If you need page-by-page you can make a set of masters withthe different scales (all based on one common master page so you only have to add the scales), then assign the appropriate master.
