archd.shx font character map?

Does anyone know where I may be able to find the %%? or ALT+ "guide" for the
archd font? I have been searching for ever in Google but to no avail and I
am getting tired of the old "type it and find out" method, although I did
manage to get the fractions that way.

TIA

do you have full autocad?

try this attached lsp file. load it with appload.
make sure the textstyle with the archd.shx font is current.
then type character at the command line.

it places a block of text at 0,0 with all the symbols and codes.

ewps... looks like I cant attach files...

cut and paste this to the command line...then type character. you could
also save it in a text file and name it character.lsp

I found this on cadalyst. thanx Jeff!!

Open the attached dwg and redefine the style to use the font you want to
see.

Hi, there,

I have been looking to find away to get the character codes of shx and other cad fonts in autocad. I found old posting with some lsp . I hope you can help me. I am using autocad 2010.

Another question how can I make a font in autocad.... Right to left as in Arabic. 

Best regards
