We are in the "process of keynoting" our first project in our office with Revit (200Shadey.  We are drafting details which include "fill patterns" .  Is there a way to "keynote" a fill pattern? Or how could I create a detail component that is a generic shaped fill pattern whose shape could be edited once inserted into the file/view - that way it would be an element I could assign a keynote value to?

I don't think you can do that but you could do a family with an invisible line that you could insert in your hatch area and keynote that.  It will not be automatic and change with the hatch pattern if you were looking for that.

Just click on the key note, then on your options bar, choose edit family. From there, you can either change the size or shape of your keynote symbol, your text size / style and if it is transparent or not.

 

Remember to load it back into your project and save it to your standards.

You can do a whole lot more than change the width.   You have not explored all of your editing options.  Remember to check out your options bar and that everything in any family has its own properties.  Dig a little deeper.

Addressing your first question about keynoting, you could use a "user" keynote.  These can attach to an object and be called whatever you want without actually changing that particular element.  You may want to consider using a symbol legend since you are refering to a fill pattern in addition to a keynote legend.

What you need appears to be there in your image, you just don't recognize it.  You say you want to change more than the width - that you want to change the top.  That sounds like you want to change the text height.  The text height is controlled by the text size listed in the panel on the left in your jpg.  If you want to change that though, I suggest that you rename the text from 2.5mm to the text height you set.

 

Also on the left is the text proportions which is set by the width factor.  The 1 indicates the text is full width of the initial text design.  The actual width of the text per line of text is controlled by the two blue dots at the endso of your text panel.

Yes but the problem is i want the same text height. I just want to make the labelsize bigger so i can fit more text into it. Thats the real problem. And the only way i can get more text into it, is by making it higher. But i cant see how that is done?

Can i fit more text into it by changing the width factor?

torstenk - I suggest you find some good books on some of the fundamentals of CAD.  Good luck.
