I already have several views of my Revit Project. I would like to drag a view onto a title sheet. This view should

be at the above scale. I made the view black/selected and right clicked. From there I created template view and went

into the dialog box. Under custom scale I chose the desire scale and hit ok. I also "applied" the template from the

drop down view menu and from the dialog box. When I go to the sheet with the views they do not appear to have

changed in size. Frustrating.Could some kind person walk me through the steps. Maybe I am doing it wrong or not

doing something. I need only a B&W view.  Attached is the view, it came out nice at 100dpi. At a later date I would be

nice to know how to install and utilize a HDR file from accustudio. This would preclude me from experimently with

studio and daylights. My first priority is getting a scaled view. Thanks and desperate

View scales are set in the view.  You can do that seperately in the view or after the view is on the sheet. 

  1. To change on the sheet - click on the view, activate it (same as being in the view) and at the bottom of the view, you will see the current sclae.  Click on that and change it.
  2. Or while on the sheet, click on the view, right click and in it's element properties, change the scale there.
