Help...how can I customize the look of my revit features, so that my drawings will have the same or at least similar appearance to that of my CAD drawings in Desktop. Like line wts/types, fonts, poche, etc. so that the drawings look more like our construction drawings rather than an "archicad" type drawing. Please help if there are any solutions, thanks! nikki

Fully customizable. Use any font you want in the symbols and families, as well as any graphics. Same for lineweights, linetypes, hatches. These are all found under project settings.

I give up. Where is it? I've been trying to change the font for some symbols and tried everything I can think of -- including properties, looking for it under "settings" "project settings", etc. -- but still can't find it; can't find the way to change a font for anything. (Not very intuitive).

with a few exceptions, fonts are controlled in the families, open the family up, change the font, the reload it. -Z "blumarble" wrote in message news:24563393.1100200864391.JavaMail.jive@jiveforum1.autodesk.com... > I give up.

Symbols are objects created as families. You'll need to open each family file and change the font appearance there. This is no different than if you wanted to change the overall appearance of a door or window.
