    Default Plotting Half Size/Full Size - Different Layers on

    I am originally from AutoCAD.... Sorry for the lack of knowledge on printing in Revit and I am sure there is already a post on this, but none of the words I typed in to find it worked.

    Is there anyway to have a portion of your title block show up when plotted half size and not show up when plotted full size. (ie the halfsize stamp show ups when plotted half size and the half size stamp is off when plotted full size) I am able to do it in AutoCad via the pen tables. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks In Advance.

    You could add a Visibility Parameter to the Scale graphic, but someone would have to manually turn it on or off. There's no way for Revit to know what scale you are printing to. But I guess that's not really a whole lot different than how you're doing it in AutoCAD.

    We just have a block on our Titleblock that shows a rectangle and says "This line is 1" long when plotted at full scale". That covers all cases. One problem I see with your process is - what happens when you send a full size set to your Repro house, and they send back both full-size and half-size sets?

    We typically send a half size and a full size set for reproduction. However you are right with you comment about the halfsize note vs line = 1", with using DWF's and PDF's for printing from....the end user of the dwgs could print a halfsize with out halfsize stamp, or vice verca.
