    Dynamic scale bar.  One that uses the scale feature in DDP to adjust the values in the scale bar. 

    Currently ESRI rejects this idea, (Bad decision on their part given I/we are the end users), recommending the user to select "Adjust division value" when resizing. 

    The flaw in ESRI's infinite wisdom is the fact that the division value is based soley on the physical length of the scale bar and NOT on the values.  You must then experiment with different lengths to fall on one that works with multiple scales.

    ESRI... don't reject this...
    Scales are very important as they MUST equate to an engineering/architechural scale
    1:100 or 1:200  NOT  1:102 or 1:210 or any other arbitrary value.  That's just BAD mapping practices.
    Engineering scales 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 or 60 and multiples thereof.
    Architectural 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 and so on...
