I don't have that tool either and have never heard of it. The most obvious thing I can think of is to put the installation disk in your optical drive and install the express tools and read the express tools help. Alternatively you could create your one polyline letters if there aren't too many needed.

If the text is an SHX font, you can give it thickness.....

txtexpress tool? Do you mean you just have not gotten around
to installing Express Tools yet from the product CD and want
to use TXTEXP command?

Hi CUN,

See attached dwg. I made the upper case letters and numerals a while back when I needed them. I haven't needed the lower case and have never converted them. But you are welcome to these. Message was edited by: Discussion Admin

Probably because there is no txtexpress. She was looking for text explode (txtexp). I'd make sure I was reading things correctly before I started making fun of other people. Don't you look silly. Message was edited by: Discussion Admin

Apparently you didn't know about txtexp either huh teiarch? So investigate it now that you do. And now you can really make some hot fonts for everybody.

And the only thing giving font thickness is good for that I've found is to make it disappear when it is behind a solid.
