        Be aware, Bootcamp in Mavericks works with Windows 7. Yosemite only works with Windows 8/8.1 I am nearly certain. And, if you have scaling issues, try setting icon scaling to anything less than 200%. On a 5K screen that may still be a bit small. But Windows sucks at hi res displays, and Revit just amplifies the suck. Combine the two and you could suck start a Harley.

        EDIT: Looks like I'm wrong, Windows 7 is possible with Yosemite BC. Maybe it wasn't in beta or something. That said, Windows 7 is a lot worse than Windows 8 for hi-res screens, being as 1600x900 was "hi-res" when Win 7 was initially developed. On a 5K screen I suspect Win8, or Win 10 in just two months, will be a better option.
