Q - question

A trick for easier text editing in Revit.

A - answer If you have to edit a text in Revit (e.g. in a drawing view) and the edited text is too small and illegible in the current view size, you don't need to change the view and zoom in.

Just roll your mouse scroll wheel during editing while holding the Ctrl key. The edited text will be zoomed in (enlarged) to a legible size. When you finish editing, it will of course return to its former (true) size.

To illustrate this - do you prefer to edit your texts this way?

miniature, unreadable text scale

Or rather this way?

Larger text size
