Where can I find an overview of comprehensive scale factor?
My problem is in dimensioning, and whether it is set at 1, 5 or 12, the dimension result is 12 times the entered value. The property is correct. Eg. a 30' polyline registers as 30' in the properties box, but 360 when dimensioned.

I also tried copying a dimension style from a drawing where I don't have this problem; first by manually entering the same values, and then by going through the procedure for copying the style into a new drawing, but neither made any difference.

Dear Lu,

You are probably confusing your actual drawing units with the architectural display of those units using the selected dimensional unit system.
