    There are several older posts with somewhat similar focus. However they have not been promoted to the level of notice and don't quite address this problem completely.  
    Problem: 
    I have a mapbook using a line feature (it cold be a page grid) with different length objects for the index layer.  
    1.  A short lines symbology is thick on one page.
    2. A long lines symbology is so thin it can't be seen easily. and the text is too small.

    If I set a reference scale that looks good for one the other is not right. 
    If I don't set a reference scale neither one look right. 

    Idea:
    1. add reference scale to the ddp dialog and dynamically change for each page with a data value.

    another way with not as much control over the results would be (and I have thought of this for other fucntionality)
    2.  make the setting in the data frame properties for reference scale <Use Current Scale> "dynamic".

    In other words each time the zoom scale changes the reference scale changes.  
    I don't like that option as much in this context, but it would be useful for some other things.
