    Question Changing Text Font

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I've used the "A - text" button to type out some single line text. The text is on its own individual layer.

    How would I go about looking at other fonts which are available to see what the text looks like when changed to these, and to then change the font to one of these.

    Thanks.

    Have you tried using the STYLE command?

    Had a crash at work as I was typing to here yesterday so my post did not appear.

    Anyway, two ways inbuilt fonts with Autocad and the world of Truetype fonts TTF. Bottom line is to look in Autocad you have to do a text style, but TTF can be viewed from Windows

    You should see the typeface examples, there are some better view fonts freebies out there, but this should get you started. Ok I have 207 fonts
