Hello...so my problem is quite a time waster and is super annoying. Everytime I select Mtext, specifically in a dimension, Autocad 2010 Arch automatically switches the highlighted (computed measurement) text to Arial before I've done anything. So everytime I have to edit a dimension Mtext, I have to reselect the computed dimension (<> / highlighted text), then select the correct text style again to get it back to the correct text style I'm using (FluxArch ttf). All of my text styles in the file have no association w/ Arial, and all the dimension styles rely on the text styles...so I'm stumped. Do I need to repair Autocad due to it Mtext editor being corrupted or something to get it to work properly again? Thx in advance to reponders.
So yeah, the .ttf file I want to use for everything (fluxarchitect) is in the default ACA fonts folder, and installed/Added to windows correctly as my other programs (i.e. photoshop, word) use it fine. And my text styles are all seemingly defined correctly. The odd part is that Arial is associated w/ none of them! There isn't a single text style that uses Arial in my files, yet it's being substituted in the dimension where ACA is computing distance & automatically creating the measurement and creating the text display, no matter what dimension style I use. Still confused how to resolve this sillyness. It just started doing it one day... My ACA installation alsohas all the program updates to date too, fyi... :\
ACA started doing it sometime around when I installed and started using this fluxarchitect.ttf that I've attached. We were up until that point only using .shx text types.
It's simple to make it happen, for me anyways... Just use mtext editor on the dimension, and ACA automatically selects the automatically determined dimension & changes it to arial before I can do anything (yet stating that it's the "standard" text tyle, which it isn't as I've set "standard to fluxarchitect.ttf). So annoying! Thx for the help!
ps. I'm assuming it's a bad .ttf file...maybe re-download and re-install into windows? I know when I tried to copy it out of the windows "fonts" system folder it wouldn't work for the attachement here, had to pull it from my default ACA "fonts" folder under program files/ACA2010
pps. I am unallowed to attach .ttf's! Hrrrmph!!! :\
I had a look at this yesterday.
Downloaded the Flux Architect.ttf font and installed in my windows/fonts folder.
It has the same odd behaviour as you describe where it substitutes the aerial font.
I have no idea what causes this.
