Q - question

Unhandled exception: Index was outside the bounds of the array

A - answer An error is displayed during editing of annotation scale list (SCALELISTEDIT) in my drawing: "Unhandled exception: Index was outside the bounds of the array."

This is caused by the structure of a very large list of annotation scales brought into your drawing. Apply SP1 for AutoCAD 2008. Edit the scale list using the commandline version of the command - i.e. -SCALELISTEDIT, or use the utility "Scale List Cleanup" or "DBXremSL" to remove excessive scales (see Download).
