It could be any one of 34 different architectural SHX fonts I have on my machine. Can't tell you the particular one at the moment. My guess: ARCHSTYL.shx.

it is not a text style, it is a font.

 

It is called Graphitelight. At least it looks just like it.

 

It is a truetype font, and you can download it here. fontpalace dot com

 

The thing about custom fonts is that the other people opening the drawing will not have it, and they will get an automatic substitution when opening the drawing. Also, you will have to build a new text style to use the font, or modify an existing text style.

you are right it's not textstyle, it's a font, I don't have Graphitelight font on my list, but if i download it for the site you suggested, will it automatic import to my Autocad?

I changed my text to "archtitl" but It doesn't look like it.

Hey! It was a guess.

 

TrueType fonts must be installed. Depending on your version of Windows the procedure might be different. You just can't download the file and put it in your AutoCAD fonts file.

You will have to download an exe file and run it. Afterwards, the font will be available to Windows, but AutoCad may not find it without restarting AutoCad.

Drag and drop the font into \windows\fonts this should do a install for you. It will then be available in Autocad Like Dana add or edit a text style to use.
