Thanks, but it seems to me that I shouldn't have to make the audio meter any bigger in PPro 2015 than I had it in PPro 2014 in order to see the scale.
However, if I make the audio meter REALLY wide, it turns the meter on its side (so that the level indicator is rising from left-to-right) and displays a scale at the bottom of the pane. This is not desirable.
Figured it out. So simple....
The entire layout was a bit too big on the monitor. I slid over the whole lefthand PPro display layout and I could see the scale on the right hand side of the meter now. I shrunk the window a tad and filled the screen.
All is well now.
