I have a text file that I have used in my Windows version of AutoCAD called hand2.shx (it looks like a hand lettered architectural font) that is not a standard text file that came with AutoCAD. I had to insert it into the text folder for it to work. Now when I open my drawings in my new AutoCAD 2013 MAC version the text style appears as a basic helvetica-looking font. How do I get my hand2.shx text to appear as hand lettered again?

Hi,

You have to put hand.shx file inside SXH folder inside AutoCAD,app. In order to find SHX folder you can right-click on AutoCAD.app and select "Show package contents" then in Finder window in Spotlight search field type SHX- this will bring necessary folder.
