Looking for iFilter reading all text inspite of font.

    We are using an iFilter that reads DWG files but it only seems to get text displayed in a TrueType font.  Can you reccommend an iFilter that reads/indexes/catalogs all the text on a DWG file no matter the font?

Font shouldn't be a problem - both SHX and TTF texts are stored the same way in the DWG (fonts are mapped through styles). What iFilter are you using? Maybe the author can give you more detailed info.

We are using Adobe's iFilter currently and it seems to only see TTF.  I have seen one at iFilterShoppe that seems resonably priced but, I did not want to get one that read DWG files, yet did not get all the text.  I guess I will buy it and give it a try.  I have seen others that are three times the price and don't see the extra benifit.

I know, the question is not really new, but you are using an Adobe IFilter to search DWG? Or did you search PDF? (Where IMHO SHX normally is not stored as Text based on fonts, but only as lines ..) Peter
