    Had someone just said it was a compiled complex linetype shape file then that would have been clear from the beginning. Your previous contribution on this merely stated: "This is not a font, but rather a shape file." which was not clear.

    It seems to be just a misunderstanding, when we talk about SHX files we should be clear whether we are talking about font SHX or otherwise and follow up comments would help if they referred to shape files as in SHP or compiled shape files as in SHX.
    "This is not a font, but rather a shape file" seems quite clear to me. Whether it is or is not used within a linetype definition is a secondary consideration.
    The answer - as stated several times - is to contact the supplier of the drawing.

    It was obvious from the original post that we are dealing with a shape file, not a font file. The only way to get prompted about a missing font file, is if you do not have a FONTMAP file, and FONTALT is set to nothing. If these conditions are true, then you get the dialog shown below:

    Notice the dialog is not asking for a specific "SHX" file, it's only asking for a font name from the list of fonts (either .shx in the support file search path, or .TTF as installed in Windows)

    When there is a missing shape file, you are prompted with a standard Windows file selection dialog, to select the actual SHX file that is missing. This is what the original message said.

    Thank you and generally I would agree with your comments.

    It has been a good and interesting discussion.

    A little late, but here it is if you need it.

    To clarify, it is indeed a complex linetype Shapefile.

    Hi! I'm a novice user of Auto CAD and I experienced this same problem too. I would like to now where should I put this file?

    Thank you so much.

    In any directory that is in your support file search path.
