I have a Revit 2015 project that I upgraded to 2017.  In the upgraded document, the text boxes are all now half as wide as in the original, forcing the text to go on two lines rather than one. When I click on the box and try to drag the button to widen the box, it narrows but will not go any wider.  I assume there is some setting that has been reset but I don’t know where that might be.  I have upgraded dozens of projects into 2017 and have not, previously, experienced this problem. 

 

Any suggestions?

Simply put. Autodicks messed with the way text works in the Revit 2017 release. It changes the way text is spaced. I hated how much work I had to do to clean this up. My templates, prewritten notes etc, were all stuffed.https://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/revit-products/learn-explore/caas/CloudHelp/cloudhelp/2017/ENU/Revit-WhatsNew/files/GUID-F57326A0-BCE1-44D6-A5FE-3F084258EE28-htm.html

Autodesk is trying to 'fix' Revit to have it handle text in the same way as it does in Autocad.   This is explained here.

This is indeed a pain but all change, even for good reasons, is a pain.

Although it says "similar to AutoCAD" for how the text works now. It is actually the proper way text is supposed to be measured. CAPS HEIGHT of Capital M is the standardised way to measure the point size of any and all text. For some reason Revit decided in its infancy to use the ascender line which means all previous text was smaller than what the point said it was in reality.
