I was working with some old NX files and then noticed when I create drawings the title block texts are all squares. Their fonts have changed to “Symbol” So I corrected them assigning a new font.
Now when I open newer files which I had created recently, all the texts including dimensions are squares. I believe somehow my default font type has disappeared (Couldn't find the default font= Arial Unicode MS) and it has changed to “Symbol” type.
Is there a way to restore my Fonts?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for your reply Ben.
Do I have to do this to each and every drawing (which will be impossible)?
Do you have any idea of what had happened?
Should I use only NX fonts to avoid this kind of situation?
Did you create this part -Yes (New parts now showing squares)
Which version of NX was it created? – NX10.0.3.5
What font is your part looking for? -Arial Unicode MS
Also, take a look in your syslog for the following lines - what does yours show?
Unable to open character font file D:\SIEMENS\NX 10.0\ugii\ugfonts\xxxxx.xxx
Character font xxxxx was replaced by UGII_CHARACTER_FONT_DEFAULT
-doesn’t show “Unable to open character font file…..”
I think the problem is fixed now. I contacted GTAC for another issue which they couldn’t reproduced. So we narrowed it down to that my “NX100_user.dpv” is corrupted. (May be due to the old files I worked with)
Fixing this seems has corrected the fonts issue as well. (I need some time to test if it fixed the fonts issue.)
Here are the instructions I received from GTAC and would like to share:
If you have a user specific issue, here are some steps to take:
If it does resolve the issue, you can exit NX and gradually move some of the files from the “NX100_old” folder to the new “NX100” folder to see which file was causing the issue. I would move a couple files at a time, then re-start NX to see if the issue re-appears. This will help narrow down which file was the problem.
If renaming this folder does not resolve the issue, you can also delete the folder in the registry.
Re-start NX to see if the resolved the issue.
