    What crosshairs? If you are talking about arrowheads, then you find those under manage tab --> additional settings --> annotations --> arrowheads.
    If you are talking about center mark size for radial and diameter dimensions that is found in the type properties of the dimension style.
    For something like a spot elevation that is controlled by a symbol family found in families --> annotation symbols

    So its the cross hairs when you pick a wall to draw from another wall, or just drawing a wall you see the small cross hairs that pop up. I remember there was a way to make them bigger. Its also on the line command as well. Its the small cross hair that shows up.

    I believe the cursors' you are taking about are controlled by the operating system not the Revit program

    This is how you change the cursor on windows 10. Right-Click your desktop --> Personalize --> see image for next steps. The cursor icon files are also saved in C:/Windows/Cursors

    Thanks for the Reply. Ive made the cross hairs bigger in Revit before. I just cant remember How. Ive also made them Bigger In Autocad Architecture. Its Really easy in Autocad architecture. Not so much in Revit. So on windows 10 or any other operating system I'm not looking to change the mouse pointer. just in the cad program.

    Apparently, others are confused about what you mean by "crosshairs" in Revit. Perhaps you could post a screenshot of what you want to change?

    I think I know what he means, but I can't even grab a screenshot because it doesn't come through with a print-screen.
    As he mentioned earlier when drawing a line or walls etc, the curser turns into cross-hairs that look like the image I attached (I cartooned what mine looks like)



    I have no idea how to change that, it wasn't in any Options that I could find (expected it in User Interface)

    Thanks for the Reply Ted.
    Yes the curser turns into cross-hairs when you activate walls or Line work. I want it a little bigger.
    I tried to get a screen shot of the cross hair, but it didn't show up for me as well. Your exactly right I tried option settings and couldn't find it there. So I know You can change that cross hair and make it bigger.
