Does anyone have a quick list of the fonts that come with AutoCAD?
I tried to do a search of the newsgroup and online and couldn't find a comprehensive list.
Thanks for your help.

Yeah, but over the years I have added several custom fonts from clients and have continued to save them into the folder with each upgrade. I needed the original list. Edited by: lbernacchi@schulershook.com on Oct 22, 2009 7:24 PM

Hi Lisa,

Start Notepad and add the following text to the top line of a new file:

dir *.shx /b > MyFonts.txt

Save the file with the name ListFonts.cmd into the Fonts folder of your
AutoCAD.

Then double click on the file to run it

then open the newly created MyFonts.txt to get your list.

For Civil 3D R2010 on my computer I get:

@extfont2.shx

Again, thanks but I don't need a list of the fonts that I currently have in that folder. I was hoping to get a list of the standard fonts that come with AutoCAD without having to install the trial on a machine just to get the list.
I will look elsewhere.

can anybody tell me what fonts are missing so that when i open legacy drgs the geometric dimensioning and tolerancing feature frames show only letters and not gdt symbols in them?
please note that gdt.shx is not in my acad fonts directory

thanks ... Chris
