Will someone please tell me what's going on, and how to fix it:
In the "Style and Standard Editor", I set-up my "Object Defaults" and "Layers" so I can simply export the idw into Autocad 2000 with mapped entities, styles, etc.
After opening the Inventor-created dwg in Autocad, the text styles vary depending on the entity that has the text.
But the Acad "Style" editor shows many styles, with all combined fonts being only 3 types. However, the "Style" editor does NOT show the font that the variant entity actually has.
I need to make all these Acad entities the same font WHEN EXPORTED from Inventor.
Here's an example of what I mean:
I always use the text font "RomanS" in Inventor, which translates to "romans" in Autocad.
Theoretically, ALL Acad text fonts should be "romans".
The Acad font for the Inventor hole call-out is "RomanS_IV25" instead of "romans".
The Acad font for the Inventor add-in text to a standard dimension is "RomanS_IV25" instead of "romans", while the "<>" default dimension entry is "romans" like it should be.
The Acad font for the Inventor leader text is "RomanS_IV25" instead of "romans".
The Acad font for the Inventor chamfer note is "RomanS_IV25" instead of "romans".
The Acad font for the Inventor standard text is "RomanS_IV25" instead of "romans".
The above are just a few examples.
The reason why this is a problem is b/c these "RomanS_IV25" fonts print so lightly on my customers printers, that they can't read the text!
What causes this to happen in Inventor, and how can I make Inventor export ALL fonts to RomanS, like I think I have already done in the "Styles Editor"? Am I missing something, or is this some kind of defect in the software? If it's a defect, is it fixed in a version newer than 2010?
