The drop down scale within ArcMap, should stay with the customized scale list instead of defaulting back to the 10 scales that ESRI provides every time ArcMap is opened.  I know it is easy enough to reload the scales, but it is a pain to have to remember to do that every time.

I understand that this is an old idea, but I ran across it so thought I'd do some housecleaning.  This is possible in ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro by using the Set As Default button: https://desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/latest/map/working-with-arcmap/working-with-map-scales.htm

"To make your current set of standard scales the default that will be used in all new map documents you create, click the Set As Default button on the Standard Scales tab. To reset your active data frame to use the default of standard scales, click Load > Default Scales."
