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!
not using it the sheet view....the sheet is 1 to 1
I can recall some issues with annotation cells scaling (or not) when using them in nested references, but I can't remember if we figured it out, or just ignored it because the project had to get out the door.
What you're doing sounds correct - attach the drawing with cells to your default (collector) and adjust annotation scale there to the appropriate size, then reference that into a sheet without applying annotation scale so that things appear as they do in the collector. That sounds like it should work. But I think that's where we ran into issues as well and I have no idea if we ever found a fix for it.

As I understand, your base dgn is at 1:30 scale & you are referencing it with 1:1 ref scale in sheet where annotation scale is set to 1:50. You are keeping "Use Active Annotation Scale" toggle in reference is OFF.
In this case, cells will be scaled with 1:30 scale as "Use Active Annotation Scale" toggle in reference is OFF. So cells will follow annotation scale of your base dgn, i.e. 1:30, though the reference scale is 1:1. If you want to scale the cells by 1:50 then you need to turn ON Use Active Annotation Scale" toggle in reference.
If you are still facing scaling issue, please share the dgn. I will investigate further.

hopefully you can open these...and things will look they way they look here. thanks!
what you had suggested did not fix the issue.
