I have just upgraded from Autocad 2008 on Windows XP to 2011 on Windows 7. In 2008 I used News Gothic font which as far as I recall was a standard font. This is not available in 2011 and the substitute font is slightly bigger and so it messes up all the text boxes. I have transferred the font across in Windows and so it is available on my computer for Word but I cannot get it to work for Autocad.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thre is no NEWS GOTHIS (or NEW GOTHIC) installed with LT2008 here (or LT2011), and not in Windows.
If this is a TTF font, you must "install" it in Windows Fonts folder (while in that folder in Windows Explorer, go to File pulldown>Install Fonts option), if it is an SHX font in must be located in the AutoCAd Fonts folder.
You may have to restart LT.
