hi all, and thanks in advance.

i'm using revit mep 2011, and in the schedules, is it possible at all to make the title a different appearance than the header. i usually like to make the title one size larger than the headers and the body one size smaller. so far i can't figure out if it's possible or not. not reall a big deal, just would like to make it look better.

I'm sure MEP is just like ARCH.  You can make the header and text different sized.  We often add a paper space title at even a larger size.

i know that you can make the body of the schedule different from the header. but i can't make the title larger than the header. unless i put a text box separate from the schedule. but that's pointless. if i have to change anything there's extra steps that i don't want to take.

You just can't do it by editing the appearance. Header or Body text size are your only options for conventional editing methods.  Maybe next release???  Just asking the question here, but how important is it that you have the text size difference?

it's not critical. if it were i would go through the extra steps to make it look the same as i can in autocad. even though i'm been using revit mep for about a year now. i have only worked on 4 projects with it. the rest of the time i'm still using autocad, so i still feel like a newbie from time to time.

wishing there were better tutorials out there for mep. they are few and far between. maybe the 2011 books will actually get printed and sold. i have pre-ordered them, but i did that last year and they never even printed the books. if i was using architectural there are too many books to count. but i'm just venting. sorry.

the big problem, is that in my office, i'm the only draftsman. so i don't know what i still need to learn. most of the time i just find a work around to get it to look right, even though it may not be the right way to do it.

I had alot of experience with RAC and about a year with MEP.  I joined a firm just starting thte BIM explosion.  What I found equally as important as Managing the Clients Expectations was managing the Firms expectations.  Everyone wanted Revit output to be exactly like acad. Being the only draftsperson must be a daunting task, good think you have resourses like Revit City and Augi

right. i have gotten alot of help from the great people here and on augi. and your right the owner cares nothing about what it takes to get revit to look like autocad. he just wants it now. at least they realize that it takes longer to model it than it does to draw it in autocad. that's why i only use it on some of the jobs that come across my desk. if it's a rush, there is no way it's getting done in revit, at this point. but they love the detail that i can show with revit. and the information that can be gathered at my fingertips.
