AutoCAD Font – Font Change when opened on another computer
I’m working on trying to figure out what is going on with this text issue with AutoCAD. The other surveyor in our office has used Carlson since early 2000’s. He still uses this software to make his maps. I have a newer version of AutoCAD and every time I load his drawings, or any DWG that originated from his computer – he has this specific title block text that blows up really big and looks completely different from when its on his computer.
I chalked it up to a different in font files on our computer but yesterday I heard another surveyor mention that his firm had a font style on their files that, when opened on another computer, would adjust title block font to be completely different and oversized so their files can’t be forged.
I asked the surveyor about it and he says he has no idea where he got the font or how it works. Does anyone have experience with this issue and how I could also import the text file to my computer so his maps and my maps look similar? They look slightly different now because I don’t have the font he does and it’s a very unique looking font.
