    Generic Annotation Label Scale Issue

    I don't recall this being an issue before, but I have a Generic Annotation Family with a label and I nest that into a Detail Component Family so I can see the text when I load it into the project. However, there seems to be a scaling issue. When loaded into a project, the text in the family is much smaller than the text in the project, even though they have been assigned the same size/font. Any thoughts on what is happening and how I can correct this.

    I have attached an image and the Revit family for reference.

      I had to struggle with the issue that it wasn't actually 1/8", 1/4", etc. I also didn't use it for nesting into detail components, so sorry, no advice.

      Dreadful font, no offense.

        Well... for me, it works if I either: Change the nested GA to be not Shared, or: Change the scale of the Project view to match the Family view scale. Might work if you change the Family view scale to match the project, save, reload.

          Changing the nested GA to not shared did the trick. Thanks for the feedback and tip.

          I would love to get rid of the Architxt font and just use Arial Narrow, but unfortunately I keep losing the battle. I never understood why some have such a personal attachment to a font. Its not like the font has any bearing on whether the project will get built or not. The amount of energy that some put into the font is puzzling to me (but that is a post for another day).

            I was so excited when i was finally able to leave Architxt behind for Arial Narrow... And then i was equally happy to leave Arial Narrow behind for Calibri.

            When i learned that it isnt actually Revit that has trouble with tags being rotated at funny angles and having the text *slide down,* but that it was a side effect of using Arial Narrow, i actually screamed out loud. I never bailed on a font so fast in my life, lol.

            Good luck over there!

              FYI... I suggest Arial set at .80 width if you want the look of Arial Narrow. Arial Narrow is apparently licensed separately from Arial and is packaged with Office, not Windows, therefore less universally available. Might help you not to have to change fonts twice.

                Do you have texts selectable in exported PDFs if they are set 0.8 width? I've never tried this in Revit but I have the issue with AutoCad. This makes texts in my PDFs unsearchable.

                  I just checked a recent pdf print, and the text is selectable, but not searchable. Interesting.
