Ok the set up is
locked and or unlocked viewport, item within viewport that needs to be dimensioned, when I try to dimension the object ( dimensions in paperspace) the viewport rescales when I scroll the mouse wheel. Never seen this before and its driving me to distraction. Any clues answers. Perhaps this should be in the Vent.

First thought is that your in floating model space.Does the tab change to MODEL and your viewport become bold to?Are you usiing a macro or lisp that is creating this causing this unwanted scenario?

Just found this for you on Autodesk:

Viewport scale changes even though Display Locked property is set to Yes

Published date: 2002-03-22
ID: TS71331

Applies to:
AutoCAD« 2002
AutoCAD LT« 2002


Issue


When you try to modify the height of a viewport through the Properties window, the scale of the viewport changes, even though the Display Locked property for the viewport is set to Yes.


Solution


This problem occurs when using Aerial View, or when the SHADEMODE option for the viewport is set to an option other than 2D wireframe.

As a work-around, you can place the viewports on their own layer. You can then lock that layer to prevent the viewports from updating.

From ACAD help
Type: Integer
Saved in: Drawing
Initial value: 4

Sets the number of decimal places displayed for all read-only linear units, and for all editable linear units whose precision is less than or equal to the current LUPREC value. For editable linear units whose precision is greater than the current LUPREC value, the true precision is displayed. LUPREC does not affect the display precision of dimension text  :? :?

When I strip out enough information to make it postable (can I post a 2.8M dwg?) the problem goes away.

Thanks CmdrDuh. I had another look at the dwg, the problem only happens after I have selected the dim command and the curser is over an object, and end snap is on. If I scrol, the drawing changes scale, if however, I scrol whilst the curser is NOT over an object the drawing does not rescale.

Maybe...but will affect some other display...like :  MVSCALE TEXTSIZE DIMSCALE...and so on.
