We have a networked fonts directory that I've re-pathed all of my autocad installations to use which we've been using for many years. Occasionally a user will call me over to ask why their machine isn't loading the fonts correctly and in variably when I check the path it is fine. I just shut down a restart AutoCAD and it sees the fonts folder. Why does this happen and why is it intermittent? Could it be a windows thing? I've tried putting a link to the mapped drive in one of the users' start up folder so that the mapped drive has to be accessed before AutoCAD launches but has still missed seeing the folder. This has been an issue for several years now and is still happening to some of our 2011 & 2012 users.
