Hi .. I am working in Revit 2010 but also have access to 2013 and am wondering if the functionality is different better/different in 2013. Here is the issue:

I'm inputing/editing a lot of text (basically the specs on a small project) onto sheets using legends. Everything, I thought, was ok but now I'm seeing that when I go back to edit an existing body of mulit-line text, no matter what, it tweaks the size/formatting of the text box. Which is a problem with a lot of text in it. I am currently working in 2010. Is it better or the same in 2013 or am I doing something wrong when I click on the box to edit the existing text?

It sounds like you are doing hard returns.  Make sure your box is set then let Revit add its own returns.  Only add at paragraphs.  Once in awhile when you edit, the box may seem to adjust and if it does, you can easily fix it.

Thanks. Actually I think it's the fact I'm forced to do some tabbing. I'm letting the box size auto-return my text but one or two of the sections have some indenting which I'm forced to mimic. So that is what is messing with me. But it is a little more manageable in 2013 although I don't think there is any difference in functionality between the versions. I think I was caught in a stupid-loop previously when I was in 2010.
