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. Regards, Rick B.
