    Text Properties - Consistency between Revit & CAD

    I'm working on a couple projects for one client and have to meet some client standards and am a little stumped on how to get the text to work to match. In the attached image the C-01 sheet is from civil (CAD) and the A001 is my sheet (Revit.) They require RomanS which I have but I can't get the text to be any heavier. Text is the correct size and I have it checked to be bold - is there anything past that I can do?

    Is the RomanS they are using in CAD TTF or an SHX? If the latter, the issue is that it's a shape that's also getting a lineweight applied to it. You won't be able to replicate that with a TTF (which is all revit uses).

    If their romanS is a TTF, I'm stumped...

          If its a "client requirement," then (nicely) inform them about the difference in TTF and SHX, and ask them what they would like you to do (since its their standard, its their issue) since it is their requirement? Surely they have to have run up against this before?

            Thanks. And great to meet you! Always fun to put a face with a name. Next time we'll have to do it in Louisville

              Just to tag on the end, I was asked to try and re-create similar RomanS (LWeight 0.2mm) label. RomanD Bold was the closest I could get if you have trouble changing opinion.

                To add to this funtastic journey - they don't like my revision schedule. Is there a way to manually assign a row height to the revision schedule? There is an option in the Appearance tab for 'User Defined' but my Revit-Fu is weak today and i can't figure out how to adjust it manually.

                  User Defined just declares how many rows there are. I *think* the only thing you can do is adjust the font size in the body, to make the rows expand or contract. But this entire thing is asinine. Again- If its the client making up these standards, ask them for the settings that they would like to see? Otherwise, explain to them that its not a configurable option in the software.

                  Why is this forum being such a piece of crap?

                    Don't disagree but I also don't have much of a choice They do have a rather lengthy standards document but it only relates to CAD and never gets into other software, probably because it is a municipal utility and 99% of the work they deal with comes from Civil.

                    Thanks for the help :thumbsup:
