Update for Revu 2017 and above

The Width and Height columns now display scaled measurements. The columns as described below have been changed to Document Width and Document Height.

Revu 2016 and Below:

The Width and Height columns in Revu’s Markups list display the actual size of a markup or stamp that has been placed on the page, and aren’t actually based on the scale set in the Measurements measure tab. If you need a markup, stamp or seal of approval at a specific size independent of the scale set in the entire drawing or viewport, you can enter the desired width and height in the Properties tab.

In the example below, a 2″x2″ stamp has been applied to a drawing that was calibrated as 1/8″ = 1′-0″. You can see the stamp is not to scale with its 2″x2″ width and height values in the Markup list, compared to the 16′ length measurement on the page.

If you need the exact width and height of a markup based on the scale set in the file, you’ll need to take additional Length measurements for each direction.

When working in metric units of measurements, you can set the Width and Height columns to display metric values by going into Grid and Snap preferences (Ctrl+K > Grid & Snap), and selecting the appropriate setting from the Units dropdown menu.
