Let's discuss a set of window scales called by clicking the scale in the statusbar that better fits my and your needs.

Instead of

1:1; 10; 100; 1,000; 10,000; 100,000; 1,000,000; 10,000,000; 100,000,000; custom ...

I'd like to choose from

1:100; 500; 1,000; 5,000; 10,000; 100,000; 1,000,000; 10,000,000; 100,000,000; custom ...

I guess we should simply let the user customize the list. Because who knows, maybe someone wants 1:200 as well - or 1:2,000,000, because that's the typical scale he works with (because, say, it is mandated by some government entity and so verified often, etc).

Custom would be great. I frequently use scales at a different order of magnitude and resolution. My list would be 1:100; 1:200; 1:300; etc. up to about 1:3,000.

Here's another vote for custom scales. For us stuck with imperial units, I like scales that divide out nicely by 12 like 1:1200 which equates to 1" = 100'.

A customized scale is perfect .
