Look I know revit doesn't "scale" text, so to speak.  For some reason, and I've been told it's what people want, it resizes text relative to a change in scale.  Great, but I don't want double-sized text when rescaling a drawing from 24x 36 to 11 x 17.  I'm sick of this problem.  Can anyone tell me how I can NOT have the 3/32" text in the 1:60 24 x 36 show up as twice as large in the 1:160 11x 17?  Wouldn't it be great if it just stayed at 3/32' and not jumped to 3/16"?  EVERYTHING else on the page changes proportions except the text.   I have to  select all the text and resizing it, and it's resizing on both pages at the same time.

Yeah its a little bit of a pain...what I like to do is annotate on the actual sheet....and when I annotate on the sheet I make sure that the sheet and the drawing is at the biggest scale I would need to print at.  Then when I need to print something smaller I just figure the scale change so if I want to print at 1/8 instead of 1/4 I hit print then instead of zoom 100% I just make it 50%...this way Everything including the text is scaled down by half.  Hope that helps!
