    What Revit Wants: Change Every Font Everywhere in Revit with this Powerful Free Addin

    Massive free time saver for changing or swapping fonts in a Revit project!


    Unfortunately, its not quite 'everywhere' - Generic Annotations need to be manually fixed. You can copy a text type to a Generic Annotation by first placing an instance of that text type on a Sheet in the Project.

    But what about SecretInternal Types?
    This tool created another annoying problem for me... it exposed a whole bunch of 'secret internal types' in Revit.

    Here is what it they look like, along with how to fix them by deleting selectively with Dynamo.

    Arrowheads:

    Fixing / removing SecretInternal arrowheads with Dynamo:


    Dimensions:

    Fixing / removing SecretInternal Dimensions with Dynamo:

    Removing the arrowheads resulted in a broken Elevation mark:

    To fix this, I deleted the broken types and families (the Elevation Circle and Pointer) using the Project Browser, and then Transfer Project Standards - Elevation Types from a known good project.

    So, now my fonts are changed and my SecretInternalTypes are fixed
