    Use Size Crop To Adjust Perspective View Size

    You can explicitly set the height and width of a crop region in paper space. Use the Size Crop tool to change the size of a perspective view to place on a sheet. Select the crop boundary then click on the Size Crop tool. Use the Scale (locked proportions) to keep the same proportions. Change the values until you get the size you want.

    Note: There are 2 modes for resizing the crop region: Field of View mode and Scale mode.

    • In Field of View mode, you are stretching the crop region to the specified size. For example, if you change a crop region from 100 mm wide by 75 mm high to 50 mm wide by 25 mm high, the crop region updates accordingly. Field of View mode is for perspective and non-perspective views.
    • In Scale mode, you change either the height or the width and Revit maintains the aspect ratio. When you change the value, the view scales, but the field of view remains the same. Scale mode is for perspective views only.
