Transfer to AutoCADLT 2005

N/A

Creating riser diagrams in SE 2D and it looks fine. Saved then as .dwg files and
when I open in AutoCADLT 2005 to plot print, most (not all) of my text is shifted
to to right. We are printing on 30in x 24in sheets which is not standard on SE.
Created custom sheet but not certain if that will solve issue.
Thank you

Jay,
This sounds like a font mapping problem. Solid Edge uses true type fonts for
the text display. AutoCAD now supports true type fonts. When you install
Solid Edge on your system, new true type fonts will be added that are used
by the application. When you save as .DWG or .DXF, the information to use
the Solid Edge true type fonts are written to the AutoCAD file. If you open
the AutoCAD file With AutoCAD on the machine that you installed Solid Edge,
AutoCAD should use the true type font for the text display. If you open the
AutoCAD file on another machine, you must install the Solid Edge true type
fonts on that machine or AutoCAD will use a default font (standard.shx) to
render the text. The differences in font size is most likely what is causing
the text to change.
Look at the font being used by the text in Solid Edge and compare it to the
font being used for the same text in AutoCAD. See if both are using the same
text font. Most likely the font will be either Solid Edge ISO or Solid Edge
ANSI.
