I wanted to pass along an issue we had with a 42 pull panel. If you have tried to print these they are larger then normal and can't be sized in any practical way. We were trying to use as much of revit as possible and had about 100 schedules and were only able to place two per sheet.

So we scaled up a titleblock 1.5 times and then were able to place 8 on a sheet which will worked great. The schedules are legible at half size as well.

Hope this helps.

I'm having a somewhat-related issue with the electrical circuit panel schedule:

 I want to show it on a sheet that also contains the power and lighting plans. However, when I bring it in, the columns are WAY too wide for any practical purpose. So I began to use the grips and re-width the columns to something aesthetically more pleasing, as well as to get it to be able to fit on the sheet with the two plans. It took about ten minutes to manually get it looking good.

 As soon as I selected the schedule to move it into place, the curse thing automatically resized itself back to its original style, completely undoing EVERY thing I just did to make it how I needed it. I attempted this two more times, just to make sure that I wasn't doing something inadvertantly to sabatoge my own work; but it definitely seems to be REVIT's quirk.

 I'm using MEP '08. Is there a way to 'lock' the sizes so that REVIT doesn't undo my work? I'll try doing the technique explained above, but since I have actual scaled plans on it, and REVIT is auto-erratic about putting in the scale size in for you, I'm not quite sure how well this will work in terms of correctly designating the scale.

 At this point, I'm having to use our CAD blocks to make an imported family that DOESN'T UNDO MY WORK.

If you have to go with the 1.5x workaround you can change the viewport title to now show the slace and then use text to put in the fake scale if you want. You still would have to deal with text sizes, etc though...


I would sugest trying the same in 2009 and see if you still have the jump back issue. Otherwise you can print part of the sheet at 1.5x and the other at 1x and then combine them in a pdf or something. Its a nasty workaround but it should take care of the problems you are having.
