Find what fonts are missing

We are receiving drawings from all around the globe and obviously people “forget” to send font files within the drawings.

As a result wile opening we are recieve something like this:

Substituting [simplex.shx] for [휴먼엑스포].

Substituting [simplex.shx] for [Malgun Gothic].

Substituting [simplex.shx] for [-윤고딕120].

Substituting [simplex.shx] for [HY울릉도M].

Substituting [simplex.shx] for [휴먼엑스포].

Substituting [simplex.shx] for [-윤고딕130].

Substituting [simplex.shx] for [-윤고딕150].


I want to take “automated” care of this, but need to get list of missing fonts in Autolisp.


(vlax-for style (vla-get-TextStyles







      (vla-get-Name style)

      (vla-get-fontFile style)

      (vla-get-BigfontFile style)






("SSSSSSS" "" "")

("STANDARD" "symbol.ttf" "")

("??? ??" "malgun.ttf" "")

("XADOS000MP1$0$z_???? ???(?????)$0$Standard" "txt.shx" "whgtxt.shx")

("XADOS000MP1$0$z_???? ???(?????)$0$??? ??" "" "")

("XADOS000MP1$0$z_???? ???(?????)$0$SITE2008$0$SITE0113(???)$0$GHS" "" "")

("XADOS000MP1$0$z_???? ???(?????)$0$SITE2008$0$STANDARD" "" "")

("XADOS000MP1$0$z_???? ???(?????)$0$????" "DotumChe.ttf" "")

("handlet" "handlet.shx" "")

("KEY-HANDLET" "handlet.shx" "")

("z_???? ???(?????)$0$SIM1" "simplex.shx" "")

("???" "Dotum.ttf" "")

("forrec-dim-handlet" "handlet.shx" "")

("HDEC" "" "")

("???-???" "" "")

("hsw" "romans.shx" "whgtxt.shx")

("SIM" "simplex.shx" "")


So instead of missing font's name  it returns “”.

Command STYLE shows all the names, so they are somewhere in database.

Please help me to find the right procedure.


Thank you in advance
