    2. In the Project Units dialog, select the discipline.
    3. Select the value in the Format column to change the display value for that unit type.

      The Format dialog displays.

    4. Specify Units, if necessary.
    5. For Rounding, select an appropriate value. If you select Custom, enter a value in the Rounding increment text box.
    6. If you require Unit symbol, select an appropriate option from the list.
    7. Optionally select:
      • Suppress trailing 0’s

        Once selected, trailing zeros do not display (for example, 123.400 displays as 123.4).

      • Suppress 0 feet

        When selected, does not display the 0 foot value (for example, 0’ – 4” displays as 4”). This option is available for Length and Slope units.

      • Show + for positive values
      • Use digit grouping

        When selected, the Decimal symbol/digit grouping option specified in the Project Units dialog is applied to the unit value.

      • Suppress spaces

        When selected, suppresses spaces around feet and fractional inches (for example, 1’ – 2” displays as 1’-2”). This option is available for Length and Slope units.

    8. Click OK.
Please note: Changing Units in Revit changes the display of units in the project but will not change the names of families loaded into the project. For example a wall type with the name “4” Masonry” will not change when the project units are changed to metric.
