When I close a file, it is at 1/4" plot scale. When I open the file later, it opens at 10' scale (3 scale items down the list). Files should open up at the same scale when closed.
Tested on file, closed and reopened seconds later, still happens.

Are you Saving the file or merely closing it?

Closing the file, but not DataCad.

When you close the file, are you answering Yes when prompted to save changes?

Is this happening in one file only or all files? If only one file, send the problem child to me.

Just check 2nd file, another project. Saved while showing 1/4 scale. ReOpened at 1/4" scale. (2 up the scale list).
But, different files, different scale list. They are both opening up at scale located at F10??

Another item that has started with a recent beta. When opening, the file doesn't always display everthing, have to "u" key to see all that should be there.

Please check the [Printer] section of your INI file for the following key:

Settings Auto Load=FALSE

Is it present?

Present as below
Settings Auto Load=RogerPrint.dps :oops:

Can I remove/change the line from the .dps file so it doesn't force the change?
Last Plot Scale=10

No sir. If that line is not present, it will default to whatever scale is at position 1. Do you not use Default drawings?

Do use defaults, but still find sometimes it doesn't load the correct plotter settings from the default.
Will have to try to track that better.
