I'm trying to open a dwg file in AutoCADLT 2011 and I'm getting no text with the error message arch_ss.shx could not be located. Is there a text file I need to download, where to I find this and where to I save it.
I do not have this problem with any of my other CAD files. Is there a way to clean up this particular dwg file so that it does not use the text I no longer have?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Solved! by Patchy. See the answer in context.
Ask him/her to use Etransmit
Thanks but that doesn't really solve my issue. I can't return to drawing to the original creator.
Is there any other way to locate the file I need or open the cad and edit to change the text source?
It's part of a linetype that uses shape to make .shx, it's not a font file.
If it were a font file, when start up a drawing and a font is missing it would say it substitutes a font.
Only full version can fake a shape and make that missing .shx using EXPRESS
So how can I ask the original creator to change this so that it acts like all my other dwg files? is there a setting I can have them adjust so it does not use that linetype/shape?
