Automatic Dimension Scaling in Paper Space

Is there a way to have the dimension size (not the dimension value)  automatically scale to the paper size scale when in paper space?

That way, you could leave the dimension scale set to one all the time and your text/dimensions would always print out the same.

Right now, I'm always changing the dimension scale whenever I change paper spaces.  Or (worse) I forget and the dimensions are different sizes.

Have you tried Property Value Presets? You can set up 'presets' for various dimension sizes or settings in the Properties dialog. Then pick what you need from the Property toolbar.

unfortunately we don't have annotative scaling in Turbocad.
I use John's method - very handy.
