Scale Text in Older Documents (Pre 2017)

From the Autodesk App Store:

Text in older documents displays differently in Autodesk® Revit® 2017 and onwards. Scale problem text quickly with this app.

Revit 2017 has changed the way fonts are sized. Depending on the font used, the text on the screen can take up more space. This leads to text overflowing and merging with other elements.

Changing all the font sizes for older documents can be time consuming. This app offers a quicker solution.

However, if you need the text placement to be exactly like the earlier version then you’ll need to edit the document by hand.

If good enough is your thing, then this app is for you.

  • Quickly scale font sizes in an older document.
  • Saves your time.
  • Scale each font individually to achieve the best overall results.

The app scans through the document for text items including text in title block families.
If the input is not valid, app will consider previous valid input.
It does not change Dimension text, Tags or other families.

Choose a scaling factor that looks best.

Each font is scaled individually.
