Fonts changed in drawing vw2008

Recommended Posts

all my dims and section markers have changed to some other font when i opened in 2008. is there a global way of changing back to my font and then locking it?

im trying to find the font mapping thing. i must have over looked it when i opened up.

what do i do now?

Go to VW Prefs under the Tools > Options menu.

Click on the Display tab

Click on the Edit Font Mappings button

If you see your desired font listed, select it and click on the Delete button.

still not working! when i edit my section marker for any reason even if i don not change anything it changes my font to Futura. this does not show up in my mapping box.

we need to have a way to LOCK in only the fonts we use for a drawing!!

What font are you trying to use?

Have you run Disk Utility and/or a font repair program?

Do you have Quartz imaging enabled?

Try running disk utility first. You may still want/need to run a font repair utility.

If VW isn't recognizing it, there's likely a problem with the font itself. VW is particular about the fonts being in order.

ok but it happens on two computers. i am home to day but last friday i was in the office when i noticed the font problem.

and why does it not change my general text?

only dims, section/elevation markers, door markers, window markers & stair markers are affected. things that the system makes.

Try turning off GDI, and see if that helps. Many fonts will not display properly if GDI+imaging is checked on. I've been informed by Tech Support that it is not a bug and it is not on the list to be addressed in any patches.

Digital,

It's hard to say.

Lefty -

GDI imaging is a PC-only feature. The equivalent is Quartz imaging on a Mac.
