    Default Converting SHX Font to True Type Font

    Can anyone give me some pointers on converting SHX Font from AutoCAD to True Type Font for Revit Structure. I've imported typical details from AutoCAD and I'd like to view the text and print the text as I did in AutoCAD.

    Please shed a little light...

    Thanks,

    David

    Default Re: Converting SHX Font to True Type Font

    There is no automatic way to change a SHX font to a True Type Font. You can do a google search of the name of your SHX font and see if there is a True Type Font that is similiar.

    Some firms (especially if you used stacked fonts) are creating their own true type font through the use of a program called Font Editor (www.high-logic.com) or similiar program.
