When drawing a wall in Revit 9.1, the DIM and ANGLE text is very small. When trying to zoom, it just scales down along with the zoom. The problem hasn't always been there... At least not with Revit 8.1! Is there anything to do?

Are you talking about temporary dimensions or proper dimensions?

 

I'm assuming temporary dimensions...  I haven't noticed any difference, what resolution have you got your monitor set to?  Maybe its too high resolution for the size screen you are using?

I noticed the same thing when i use my 1280x720 projector as my "Primary Monitor". The active dimension text (any dimension attached to the currently selected object) become illegibly small and objects become very hard to click on to select; as if they have a 1 pixel width activation zone. If I switch my 1280x1024 Monitor back to the "Primary Monitor" the problem goes away - I think i have to reboot first though. I think it may be a problem with Revit at "Wide Screen" resolutions.

Hmm. My resolution is 1680x1050 and I have tried to make it smaller, but without results.

I've taken a screen print to show the problem. It beginning to irritate me, because it haven't always been doing that. I've also tried to reinstall revit, but without success!

I'm using a MacBook Pro with windows? Could it be the problem? I'll try install Revit 9.1 om my DELL this weekend to see if it also will get the same problem. I'm determinate to solve this problem, or at least find out the reason why :-) 

But feel free to write suggestions or about experiences with this problem.

1680x1050 is a "widescreen" resolution. I think this is a bug (and a major pain in the posterior). It would be nice if Revit provided a way to set the size of this text.

Tried to install REVIT 9.1 on my DELL 15,4" wide screen today... No problem it showed up fine. My MacBook Pro is a 17" wide screen. The problem doesn't make any sense, when reading others experiences with this issue. It's obviously not a general fault in REVIT as I see it.
