drawing view scale property

This was discussed back in 2003, and Mike Wilson provided a work around (copied below, thanks, Mike) but has SW added access to the view scale
property since then? The work around gets the job done, but is a bit of a pita, and with different people working on models, and drawings and not knowing what's driving the views it gets a little awkward.
Appreciate any help if anything new is available.
thanks, Diego

If you 'really' want to you can...
*) Sketch a rectangle around a view *) Insert-> Drawing View-> Detail *) Hide original view (don't hide dependant view) *) Align the detail view to other views if you want
That's it! Now when you change the scale of that view (other than 1:1) you will see the note update. You can erase the words: "Detail A" so you just have the scale.
