Increase Size of Temporary Dimensions

From a post by Scott Latch, the new Technical Product Manager for Revit Architecture, at AUGI's Revit community forums.

Open Revit.ini file in Notepad.
The file is typically located in C:\Program Files\Revit Architecture 2008\Program.

Add the following line to Revit.ini in [Graphics] section:

Where N is a number larger than 8 (default hardcoded value). Good starting point is twice the default size (i.e. 16-17).

Save Revit.ini.
Restart Revit.

If the size of temporary dimensions is still small, repeat from step 1 with larger number.

Please note, the [Graphics] section may not exist. If this is the case add a line that contains [Graphics].

Hrmmm, I added the Tempdim line to my .ini file under the [Graphics] section. I don't seem to notice a difference. Did you get this to work? Thanks again! I enjoy checking out your site almost everyday! Keep it up!

You need to install the latest build.

has anyone been able to do this with Revit Arch 2010? I have had no problems with the previous two releases :-(

I cannot get this to work in RAC 2010. Is anyone else having problems? Worked fine for 2008 and 2009.
