Revit MEP Temporary Dimensions

May 4, 2011

Temporary Dimensions play an important role in Revit Architecture, Structure and MEP. In Revit MEP the term “temporary dimension” is a little misleading.  MEP’s temporary dimensions are less about length and more about displaying key design information. I have found on a number of machines that the out of the box Revit MEP temporary dimensions are much too small to be legible. Users try to zoom in on them to read the information but they are still illegible because they stay the same size no matter how far one zooms in on them.

To fix this click on the Revit “R” in the upper left of the screen and go to Options. Then click on the Graphics tab.  There you will find the dialog box to increase the “temporary dimensions text appearance” size.  Adjust this value to a usable size and you will be much more able to get your design information on the fly.

Of course this is also the same place to set Revit Architecture and Structure.
