Does Revit have text styles like Autocad?  I would like to assign a text style to my symbols, such that I can change the style and have all of the different symbols update.

This is one of those BASIC issues that you should read about in your manual and your HELP.  There is also so very good tutorials on the basics that are supplied with the product and or are downloadable from AutoDESK.

I have actually looked through the help file, and the tutorials, and apparently I have missed something.  I completely understand how to update a symbol family such that when I change it all of the instances of that symbol update.  However, I am coming from the direction of Autocad, where I could use a "style" of text, such as "note" that is defined with a font, such as "romans".  I could assign style "note" to all of my symbols, whether they are a door, room, note, callout, etc.  Then, if I want, I can change the font in style "note" to be "arial" and all of my door, room, note, callout symbols update to be arial.  I can't find how to assign a text style to multiple symbols. 

It seems to me that in Revit, the font is stored within the symbol family, and each symbol family has to be updated to change its font.  Am I missing something?

Sometimes people ask questions in forums because they have looked through various resources and the answer isn't clear, not that it isn't there, it just isn't clear.  Usually in a forum, someone who has experienced the same issue has a quick answer.  Maybe it is basic, but sometimes we miss the obvious, this is why we ask.

Sorry but the first part of your question (Does Revit have text styles like Autocad?) suggested a very base question.

 

Obviously REVIT does have text styles for projects.  But it does not use project text styles in family labels.  If you edit a tag and give the text/label a funky name, you will see that Text and Labels in families are controlled at the family level and they do not load into the project.
