FONT ISSUE: TEXT STRING NOT DISPLAYING PROPERLY

84 Views, 1 Replies

In AutoCAD 2008 when we open older drawings (2005) certain text do not
display properly. These are %% elements. For example %%208 represents 1/2
but is displaying as the letter "D". Other fractions are doing the same
thing but displaying as another character.

The font type in question is not a standard AutoCAD font and I do not have
the original SHP file. Is there method to force it or make display correctly
or fix it easily as there are many drawings.

-OR-

I could use if available upon a drawing opening up to search the drawing for
text then replace a part of the string.

The FIND utility in AutoCAD works fine how ever it is dialogue driven and is
a little time consuming to perform these steps individualy for approximately
15 searches per drawing.

Does anyone have available a lisp routine that I can incorporate to run that
will perform these steps.

Any help would be appreciated.
