Opening an AutoCAD 2000 format file. Loading Modeler DLLs. Substituting [ROMAB___.TTF] for [romb____.pfb]. Substituting [SANSS___.TTF] for [sas_____.pfb]. Substituting [SANSSBO_.TTF] for [sasbo___.pfb]. Regenerating model. AutoCAD menu utilities loaded. AutoCAD Express Tools Menu loaded. I just reinstall AutoCAD 2000,last time I never seen "Substituting...etc",my question is why displayed as like that,what meaning it,can you help me,thanks

Yes - it means that autocad cannot find ROMAB___.TTF, SANSS___.TTF or SANSSBO_.TTF files in your font sub-directory. You will have to do a search for those files and copy them into your font sub-directory OR use other fonts.

Yes - when autocad cannot find a font that is listed in a file, then it will try to substitute another font. That is the reason I have an alternate font named as a substitute in my acad.lsp file.

Is it just me or does AutoCAD have a difficult (meaning realllly slow) time regeneration TTF?

I don't think so. I use Arial.ttf and works fine.
