2015 Can you change layout annotation scale off "1:1"?

Yea... But I want 12:12 (1'-0" = 1'-0") to be the default when creating new layouts and I want 1:1 (1:1) gone. If I adopt 1:1 (1'-0"=1'-0") as my default that would work, and only my page setups show the 1:1 scale... which I guess is fine. I guess my users will have to deal with it.

2014 Raster vs. Vector Processing

Hmmm--unless I'm missing something: You could also just turn of Surface Patterns and leave the annotations and finish floors on. This would eliminate the halftone problem.

Lengthen the Color Drop-down Menu

When additional colors are used in a drawing, AutoCAD adds them to the color drop-down list.  However, the drop-down is designed to only display about 10 colors at a time, requiring you to use the slider bar in order to reach all of the colors…


Stop controlling visibility of elements by view discipline

The way that Revit controls visibility of elements by view discipline causes problems with view templates and family creation, as any MEP view will only show things like generic models and specialy equipment half-toned.  Another thing that is frustrating is not having MEP hidden…
