font foul
« on: February 16, 2005, 11:15:50 PM »
I bought a font, a nice, new TT font, and installed it, but ADT 2004 will not display it (!)  When I insert text with mtext and go to edit it, I CAN SEE THE FONT in the text formatting box!  It's THERE, Autocad knows it's there, but when I click OK it disappears- and returns to the default lame font, as though it needed a substitute.
What gives?  Has anybody seen anything like this?
Thanks--

holy smokes.  thanks for the lead, but nobody knows!
I tried this on another computer, in another place, and had the exact same results: in the font list, can be selected, when edited appears to be valid, when back in the model, it reverts to lame font.  It is the most bizarre thing.  More?

I have had a problem similiar to that.  I had to move the TT font into the Acad font directory, and it worked fine after that.

copy / paste from whereever you put the font (c:\Windows\fonts\   maybe) to c:\acad2005\fonts\ or whatever your path

hi folks,
me again...I still can't resolve this issue.  I don't know enough to know what I don't know, you know?
can I/ should I convert the font somehow?
thanks--
