Is it possible to increase the drawing area in Revit Architecture?
You can easily shrink the Ribbon in Revit Architecture to increase the drawing area. Click the minimise to panel button several times to cycle through the Ribbon display options. The minimise to panel button is located to the right of the panel tabs at the top of the Ribbon.
Remember that you can also tear off individual Ribbon Panels and dock them in your drawing window prior to shrinking the entire Ribbon. Left click on a panel heading and drag into the drawing window. Hover over the right hand side of the panel and you will access the option to return it to the Ribbon.
