Scale bars provide useful context, but so often the initial length is not what you want and it seems the only way to get there is to manually adjust the bar's width (clicking and dragging or changing the width in the Format Ribbon's Size & Position). What if there was the option to say I want my scale bar to be X map units (e.g. 100 km long) and it adjusts automatically?

Hi @KelleeKoenig1 This is possible through the adjust width fitting strategy.
