I have a base file that is 30 scale with cells at that scale. The base is referenced into many sheets at 30 scale & all the cells are fine. I have one sheet that is 50 scale but I cannot get the cells to show up at 50 scale in the sheet view, they are still 30 scale, even though in the default view they are fine (showing up at 50 scale) as soon as I toggle to sheet view they go back to 30 scale. I can't figure out what setting (s) I need to adjust. Thanks!
Are you using the Use Annotation Scale when you attach your default to the sheet?

Could you please check Use Active Annotation Scale toggle in reference is ON or OFF? If its On cells should follow 1:50 scale, if OFF then should be 1:30 scale.
You can find this toggle in Reference dialog as well as reference properties dialog.
Just some questions

Is this referenced 1 to 1 or scaled onto the sheet via detail scale?

Just so I understand. If you are in the default model (this is the model where the cells live)and toggle annotation scale from 1=30 to 1=50 then the cells scale accordingly? If they do scale accordingly and you then open the 30 scale sheet model are the cells still correct (default model was set and saved at 50 scale)?
so here is the setup. I have a base dgn set at 30 scale - cells look great and I can change the scale here & the cells scale up or down. I have individual dgn's that the base is referenced into at 1:1. and the scale is set in the model (default) of each of these individual dgn's to the scale that I will need the sheet view to be mostly, 30 scale, but one at 50 scale. regardless of which scale I make the default in the individual dgn's, the cells will either scale up to 50 or remain at the 30 scale like they are in the base dgn. once I go into the sheet view the cells drop back to 30 scale for some reason. I am not using the "use active annotation scale" for the reference because the sheet view scale is 1 to 1. If I go into the base dgn & change the scale to 50 then all the sheets that are 30 scale have the cells too big. I hope I answered your questions
