I'm new to this forum. I came here to ask for your help.
I was wandering while doing a project of some construction elements if there is any way in Revit that I can change the numerical value of an dimension not with the text but with different value ? and at the same time I don't want Revit to rescale my elements. Something like in AutoCAD that I can type in any number I want and Revit won't rescale i or change the distace between them.
I know that I could simply use AutoCAD instead of Revit but I find it easier in general and I really want to learn it since I'm a student.
Thanks for your help!

Revit is different. You can replace a dimension value with text, but you cannot really fudge a dimension value to show a different numeric value. You could enter a value that contains numbers and text, such as "This is 2 feet 2 inches" , but in general, that is very unusual in Revit.
Alfredo is right....Revit has an other philosophy than Autocad....and this will be unfair for the program...
But , anyway ....a trick exists ...I read it once in an article, I don't remember exactly whose it belongs...but I put it down in a notebook .
Here are the steps :
and it does work.....
