I want to use Symbol Scale by Folder, and I try to turn on Symbol Scale when I open a folder that has things like electrical symbols, that need to be scaled, based on the plot scale. The Symbol Scale setting keeps getting toggled off.

How do I get things that way I need them to be?

Yeah looks like it is. Could there maybe 2 entries for that INI setting?

The way it should work is you toggle on the global option 'Symbol Scale By Folder', and then Datacad should start reading and writing
Code: Select all[Scaling]
Symbol Scale=0
to each folder's SymbolBrowserInfo.INI file. Then when you browse around different folder, each will remember it's own state for Symbol Scale setting.

Where are your symbols living? With Symbol Scale By Folder enabled, can you verify that the SymbolBrowserInfo.INI value changes for a folder when you toggle Symbol Scale on/off?
