Efficiently adjusting symbol, label and line scales in FDM

Hi,

 

My companies workflow consists of reducing data in TBC, exporting as a DWG and then completing the drafting process in Microstation. 

 

In Microstation we use referencing to attach the data onto sheets at different scales. Our symbols, labels and line scales are set up in TBC to suit a plan at a scale of 1:200 as this is our most often used scale. If we want to use a different scale we need to scale the symbols, labels and line scales so they end up being the same size when referenced onto the proforma. 

 

The only way I can think of achieving this would be to create multiple FXL files and scale the symbols, labels and line scales individually, however this would be a very tedious process. Would it be possible to add an enhancement in the FDM where a user defined scale can be applied to a code as a whole resulting in the corresponding symbol, label and line scales to all be adjusted?
