Re: Truetype font vs SHX

You need to always ensure Z=0, for Text, Mtext, Attributes in block and more, or you will always get the 'fuzzies'. THis is done by controlling your cursor's Z elevation, ensureing any objects you snap to are also at Z=0 and more.

 

If you can't get Flatten to work, the simplest oldest macro below will fix them all too, put it in a button:

^C^C_select;_auto;_move;_p;;0,0,0;0,0,1e99;_move;_p;;0,0,0;0,0,-1e99;

 

Or LISP the macro if you are a typing cadder:

(defun C:FLAT ()
 (command "_.move" "_all" "" '(0 0 1e99) ""
                   "_.move" "_p" "" '(0 0 -1e99) "")
 (princ)
);end

 

Or at the commandline you can try:

CHANGE
select objects
P
E
0'-0" (or plane elev)

 

Never forget that AutoCAD is a 3D program.

 

If you prefer broken-pencil-drawn text, there is nothing wrong with old-school SHX fonts, they still work.

Michael,
