Feature request #7975
Meaning of scale field not explained in Print Composer

In Print Composer's Item Properties pane is a Scale field. The meaning of this field is not explained. All I can figure out is if I reduce the number in it, that zooms in within the currently-selected item.
Note that this is not a support request. This is a feature request for the UI to do a better job explaining what this field means. I guess it has something to do with the number of projection units displayed on the horizontal dimension of the viewport of the item, but I am not sure.

Actually - I've tracked down the problem I was experiencing - I had changed the CRS for a project, but the map extents in the composer retained the old coordinate system's values. Updating the extent fixed the scale problems I was having.
Aren - does this sound similar to what you are seeing, or is this a different issue? What values are you seeing for your map scales?
