I am currently using microstation ss3 ver 8.11.09.578 and my drawing is scaled to 1:1. I would like a scale of 1/2"=1'-0". Can someone show me the calcs and the steps how to do this?
Most users, when working in their design model, would work with a design that is 1:1, which is basically called "true scale". If you are wanting to scale this design I would suggest working with a sheet model and referencing this model into it. That way you can manipulate this reference to whatever scale you wanted to use rather than permanently making modification to the actual model elements. The following information from various sources should be of assistance in understanding how to use the referencing tools.

It may also be useful for you to upgrade to a supported version of MicroStation, whether that be CONNECT or V8i (SELECTseries 10).

create a sub model and self ref the master model and attach it at a scale of 1/2"= 12 " or 1:24 ( ie 1"=24" ) or create a saved view of the master model and attach that as a ref with 1:24 scale in the ref manager. . btw what units is your design file in? We are metric here Australia so scaling is really easy....
How are you using your title block or sheet frame paper outline will also affect what steps to do?
