How drawing a map with different scales?

Example: Plant E = 1:100, Court E = 1:50, Detail E = 1:20

The text should have the same height

Thank you.

Like with Autocad, you have to choose one principal scale (for example, 1:100) and you'll scale the others according to it (1:50: scale factor 2, 1:20: scale factor 5). If you have quote you'll explode them and modify the height (it's not very clean, but it's the only method I know)

The problem is that the dimensions measured to the object with the new scale, not with the original measure.

I tried to scale a block and edit it to return to the original scale, but it does not work.
