Revit 2017 – Adjust/Enlarge User Interface Display

By John Flanagan


During training sessions some delegates struggle to see not only the User Interface icons on the projection screen but also on their own screen. In Windows 10 it’s very easy to change window screen display settings. Having larger tool icons on the Ribbon makes navigation easier.

To change the display settings follow these steps:

- Right click on your desktop view and select display settings from the menu.

This is a great asset when touring the user interface for the first time. The illustration above clearly demonstrates the advantage of a clearer Project Browser. You may have to use the scroll bar a bit more but that’s a small inconvenience.
