I have a text file that I have used in my Windows version of AutoCAD called hand2.shx (it looks like a hand lettered architectural font) that is not a standard text file that came with AutoCAD. I had to insert it into the text folder for it to work. Now when I open my drawings in my new AutoCAD 2013 MAC version the text style appears as a basic helvetica-looking font. How do I get my hand2.shx text to appear as hand lettered again?

You have to put hand.shx file inside SXH folder inside AutoCAD,app. In order to find SHX folder you can right-click on and select "Show package contents" then in Finder window in Spotlight search field type SHX- this will bring necessary folder.
