Hi,

Im new here and i am wondering if it is possible to lock the size of text. So setting the scale 1/50 to 1/100 doesnt have effect on it

thanks

The text size change is intentional. The size is changeing related to the
plotted size of the view. Text is assumed to remain at a constant PLOTTED
size, so when you change the scale of the view annotation objects wil change
in relation to the new scale. This is a key concept to understand when
working with Revit.

There is no need to lock the size. Dimensions and text automatically adjust
to the scale so that when placed on a sheet all dimensions and text are the
same size regardless of scale.

Aside from what Jeff and CDV stated, there is a Model Text command in the
Modeling tab of the Design Bar that does not scale with the view. This is
meant for items like signage.
