When using Adobe Acrobat 8 Standard I have issues when trying to scale off PDF’s that I receive from Architects. When using the distance, area, or perimeter tool it will not scale correctly even after I change the scale in the tool box. I’ve tried to change the scale to different setting and the same measurements will be produced regardless of what scale I set it to.

Example: ¼” inch per 1’ foot will scale will produce the same distance as ½” inch per 1’ foot.

In Edit> Preferences>Measuring 2D (this may be called slightly differently, I have A9), there should be a tickbox 'Use scale and units from Document'.

Can you untick this and try again?
