So im trying to convert a SHX file to a TTF file for my companys title block in revit


while i was trying to do this i accidently changed the default program to open SHX file type to Autocad.  I know this is incorrect.  Any suggestions for fixing this?


i wasnt able to convert SHX to TTF

I think that you should be able to right-click on an .shx file and select "Open With" » "Choose default program..." from the menu. There should be a checkbox in the following dialog box "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file". Check it and set it to open in Notepad. Then it won't launch in AutoCAD anymore. I'm on Windows 7.
