I don't think that's gong to work, but I need confirmation of the settings to know for sure. My guess is that in your prefs you have When Scaling Objects Adjust Scaling Percentage selected, which menas that ID still thinks the type is the original size (Do you see two sizes listed, one in parentheses?).
If that's the case, you would need to use ther reset scaling to 100% command on all scaled frames for ID to recognize the scaled size.
No, I've selected the contrary, see screenshot below:
And I do not see two sizes listed, one in parantheses.
I'd like to see the size listing, too.
It's possible that the prefs option was changed after scaling took place. You should be able to find that out by copying some text and pasting into a new frame on the pasteboard, then compare the physical size with the original.
