The scale only apears when distance and flash output can be calculated. When you put it up to the ceiling the scale dissapears as well, because the system doesn't know the distance (ceiling hight) and how much the lightbeam should be focussed or spread same for power.

Basicly off shoe the distance from flash to subject changes so the scale makes no sense anymore.

I just mean the distance I think.  Maybe "scale" isn't correct?  I have a 430EX, and there's no scale (range) per se.  There's just a single distance displayed, which I thought was just a function of the aperture, ISO, and flash power.  If that's the case (and I'm not overly confident that it is :-)), then shouldn't it be true whether the flash is on the camera, off, master, or slave?
