Can the scale of the text in a view change with the scale of the view when changing the scale of that certain view?  I know Autocad does this and I was just wondering if there was a way to make Revit do it as well.

The great thing about REVIT is the text size stays the same no matter what scale the view is set to.

I can see why it would be helpful if the text could change scale.

For example you draw a plan at 1:50 and have dimensions and room tag text which sits nicely in proportion with the drawing. You then set up a sheet and wish to have the plan views at 1:100. The text then is too big for the plan.

 Can it be set somewhere to change automatically?

the size of the text really does not the stay the same size. the size of the text ia adjusted according scale so that

 the print size of the text stays the same. the text itself actually changes in size depending on the given scale.

coreed ...  I should have qualified my statement by saying the size of the printed text stays the same.  The size of the text relative to the model adjusts. 

 

Old AutoCAD users always thought about text relative to the "model" and had to adjust.  After AutoCAD added paper space, I preferred doing annotations and dimensions in paper space.  That's why REVIT was so easy a transition for me.  Revit really treats all dimensions and annotations as "paper space" elements in that they always print the same size relative to paper not view scale.
