Looking for shx file

Hello,

We received a topo file from a client that is missing an SHX file. I don't know if it is a font, or a shape file for linetypes. I don't know who did the topo, otherwise I would try to contact them for the file. Anyway the name of the file is HJWSHP.SHX.

If anyone out there has a copy, I would sure appreciate getting a copy.

Thanks in advance,

Dave Massingale

Most likely it's a shape file if you are being prompted for it.
Can't you backtrack through the "client" to find the author of this
file, then request it from them?

Even if someone has a file named "HJWSHP.SHX", it's unlikely that it
will be "the" file you are missing, and contain the right shapes.

Hello,

make a copy of any AutoCAD SHX font and rename it as HJWSHP.SHX.

Tried renaming my simplex font to the HJWSHP and got about 20 lines of

HJWSHP.SHX is a normal text font file, not a shape file

but at least I don't have to press cancel when opening the .dwg
