Fix text when opening Autocad drawings

Post by ergols » Wed Jun 15, 2005 5:42 am

I've looked at the movies provided and I can't find out how to have MSCad 2005 use the proper fonts when I open an existing Autocad drawing. It substitutes text style fonts for a lot of my leroy fonts and it looks kind of *****y. Can you tell me how I can set this up properly?

2 options may help:
1) copy all SHX fonts that you need, from the other program, into the FONTS folder under MSCAD2005.
2) There is a file called ICAD.FMP that permits you to remap fonts that don't exist on your system to fonts that do exist. This file is in the MSCAD2005 folder. You can see several examples in it, follow them to add your own.
