  1. I have looked all over the place trying to figure out how to create a SHX file to use in AutoCAD that has each shape in the file mapped to a key and I am not having any luck. Perhaps someone here will know how to do this. I apologize if this has been covered somewhere already. If that is the case, please just link me to where this is explained. I know how to create a shape file using MKSHAPE. I know how to convert the SHP file to a SHX file using CONVERT. I know that SHX files have to be in a FONT folder within the AutoCAD folder. But none of this explains how to create a SHX file that I can use in the MTEXT command for example so that when I type the letter A (for example) the custom shape I created for the letter A is displayed, and the same for B and so on. Is there a program I need to use to help me create such a file? If not, what is the process I would have to go thru manually to create what I need?
  2. Good morning all, I am trying to create a linetype that uses a polyline/block to create a series of thicker arrows. I have written: *DIVERSION,DIVERSION DRAIN -----> -----> A,.982117,-.256835,[DIVERSION,DIVERSION.SHX,X=0,S=.25].977201 But it does not seem to work just comes out as a series of dashes. I have attached a few things that may help. Cheers Allison DIVERSION.lin DIVERSION.shp DIVERSION.shx
  3. Hi everyone- I have Hebrew fonts in my files which show up as question marks on my home computer (AutoCAD 2010) but show up fine on my work computer (AutoCAD 2014). Both computers have the appropriate SHX fonts downloaded and installed in the AutoCAD Fonts folder Both computers have the respective Fonts folder listed as a Support File Search Path in Options. (ex: Computer:OS (C: ) : Program Files : AutoCAD 2010: Fonts) Does anyone have any other ideas? 2 screenshots attached. Hebrew fonts appear okay in AutoCAD 2014: Fonts are question marks in AutoCAD 2010:
  4. I am looking for the following support file, hcadr.shx. It was used on drawing by a company called McDaniel Fire Systems (www.mcdanielfire.com ) in Illinois which is no longer in business. Can anyone point me to a resource for this file? Thank you.
  5. How can I print out a list of SHX fonts for AutoCAD2013. I’m looking for some way to print (or view) shx font samples. This does not seem to be much of a problem for TrueType Fonts installed in the Windows 7 FONT Folder,but it would be very handy to have some simple quick document, or screen, that would do the same for the AutoCAD SHX font folder.
  6. Hi All, as many of you know, there are ways to get hatch patterns via VLisp and without needing to open *.pat files. Is there any same way to get information about font files? If so, how? Any help, or clue is greatly appreciated.
  7. An AutoCAD 2004 drawing asks for a missing .shx file every time it opens. I read that I could use the `linetype` command, and delete any of the line types that are referencing the missing .shx file. In the linetype window, however, I don't see an obvious indication that any of these are referencing the file: http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/6046/screenshot8192010123219.jpg Any ideas?
