Looking for a "Dashed" Font in SHX format

Happy Holidays Everyone,

I'm trying to find a "dashed" or "dotted" SHX font that can be used in
AutoCAD; similar to what us "old" draftspersons created by hand using
"leroy" templates and Koh-I-Noor ink pens. It simulated a "ghosted" look
for the lettering. For example, each line and arc "stroke" in the lettering
consisted of dashed / dotted lines rather than straight solid lines. I saw
a post recently that mentioned something about an earlier release of AutoCAD
containing a font called Dashfont.shx (or something to that effect), but
I've had no luck in locating it. I've considered creating one from scratch,
but would rather not due to the amount of time and effort involved. Thanks
in advance to anyone who might be of help!

Sincerely,
Eric

Hello Eric,

No need to recreate the fonts. I'll send them to you separately.

Hello Chip,

I'll send you the fonts directly -- look for them in your e-mail.

Any chance you could share these fonts?  Used to have them but lost them at my last upgrade.  Thanks.

A Google search presented a first link with where to get it: why not try it instead of posting here. Or did you?
