Revit Text Plotting Different Size


Recommended Posts

Hi all! Me again... the person that still hates Revit. 


I have some title/legends pages created in Revit where everything is basically annotations and lines. I realize this isn't the ideal way to do things, but for what I needed right now, it was the best way. So, I have some text notes that look correct in Revit, but when they print, they print at a NOTICABLY smaller font size. Almost everything I can find online tells me to check my monitor resolution <eyeroll> which is CLEARLY not the problem. The text style I have is supposed to print at 3/32", and since this isn't in a "view", there's obviously no scale on the page. 


Anything? First picture is what it's supposed to look like, second is how it prints.

If these are not default fonts might want to give this a try.




if that not the case try this.

So... it was an Arial font, so that's not the problem. 


After MUCH Googling and farting around, I realized no one REALLY has a great answer to this. The common suggestions were indeed scaling on the monitor, and to just restart. Since I USUALLY work on external monitors from a docking station, and this time was plotting directly from my laptop, I just did both. Scaled all my programs to 100%, restarted, and it fixed it. I have SINCE reset my program scaling, and it's still plotting properly, so at this point I'm thinking restarting was the culprit here. I have also read that often the problem will come back after a while. But I will leave this up in case anyone else runs into this issue and has a better fix or just needs this info!
