You will need two layouts - one with a drawing which scale you want to see, one with the drawings (or/and schedules), whose scale is not interested in you. At first all drawings are placed on a single page on which is autotext, afterwards "unnecessary" cut and save in second layout, which has no autotext. Then, using the Trace Reference, put on a second Layout on the first.. It is important to remember when printing use the "Print Reference "("Display Reference " if you save to the PDF).

As someone at Graphisoft Budapest recently pointed out to me, first pick which CATEGORY autotext refers to, and then pick what AUTOTEXT ITEM(S) of the the selected reference you want.


First you alt/opt+click on the drawing in question.
Select the drawing, right click and choose 'set as autotext reference'

By default the selected reference is the LAYOUT so if you pick Drawing Name, it will list the names of all the drawings on the Layout.

Instead browse the available references by clicking on the arrow (see screenshot). You will find available the drawing you alt/opt+clicked on available as reference.

Select this and then chose Name and now the autotext will only show the Name of this drawing..

Categories of autotext. Note that the Proposed South Elevation which I had alt/opt+clicked on is listed as a reference category.

I think I'm having a senior moment but when I try to follow the instructions given above I'm not finding the Referencing option.

I tried alt clicking one of my views first but it didn't seem to make any difference.

Nah ha... sussed it. The alt clicking wasn't working for me maybe a "Mac" thing but by right clicking the view I got the command Set as Autotext Reference

Right click View and set as the ref

Then using the text tool select from Category as Referencing and then select Scale
