I wish for the ability to format the title of a schedule seperately from the headers, i.e. having the schedule title at 1/4" font, and the headers at 1/8" font.  That would be SA-WEET!

Where there's a will__there's a way to fake it.

So here ye go:

Create a schedule,_let's say a Door Type Schedule >> Add the "fields" (which will be your headers) to the schedule >> In the "Appearence" tab, uncheck the text option "Show Title" >> Establish your desired Header font size, in the Header Text field_let's say 1/8"

Create another schedule_let's use a schedule type that is hardly ever used, like Gutter Schedule, but name the schedule what you want the Door Schedule "Title" to be >> Add just one "field" to the schedule (so that we are allowed to create the schedule) >> In the "Appearence" tab, uncheck the text option "Show Headers" >> Establish your Title font size through the Header Text field_let's us 1/2"

Drag both schedules onto a sheet >> Align the left edges of the schedules >> Space the columns ("No Title" schedule first) to the desired format >> Match the "No Header" schedule "Border" with so that both are nearly right on top of one another. (Using Thin Lines "TL" helps)

If necessary you can then group the schedules together (which you cannot do if you try using any another view other than that of the Schedule format)

 Voila__Hope this helps.. only took five minutes.

 

Please see attached Smile

TIP**Use a heavier line for the Border of the "No Header" schedule

Thanks for the work around.  I did something very similar to that to get the appearance I was looking for.  It just seems like such a simple thing to add, the ability to control the schedule title text separately from the headers and body, that I hope that the next version of Revit will incorporate it and save us from having to do the 5 min. work around.  Thanks again for the response.
