Fixing fonts

We are completing a series of drawings that have been worked on within various offices, using AutoCAD 2011.  As a result, we have differing fonts.  Is there an easy way to make a global change to fonts within the project?


Kind Regards,

Hi Mike.


Depending on what kind of text that's used (mtext or single line texts (or attributes)), you can solve this using a script.


Create a SCR-file (using notepad) and type something like





Here, WD_IEC is the text style we want to change the font for. This will update all single line texts/attributes using this text style.


Now, you can use the project wide utilities to run your script for all drawings in a project.
