Barc code font changes when saving as DWG

Hi all,

 

On all machines, after ST6 MP8 release, we have started facing font changing problem when saving as .DWG

 

We are using "Free 3 of 9" Font for writing barcodes on .dft files, but when saving as .DWG or .dxf (!after MP8 release!) font changes to a normal letters font. Only .PDF have no problem.

 

Attaching pictures fo better understanding:

 

how dft look:

Are the DWG/DXF being open on the same PC?  If so, it is probably the font mapping options when you save them out of SE.  Check your Options when you go to save out a DXF/DWG and on the font mapping page set the map correctly for the barcode font you are using.

 

If it is a different machine, insure the font is installed on the machine opening the DXF/DWG.  PDF's can embed fonts so if the destination PC doesn't have them, they still work.  Most other files do not, including DXF/DWG so the fonts have to also be installed wherever the DWG/DXF files are opened.


Thanks,
Ken

Hi Grundey,

 

Just before update MP8, everything worked perfectly, so font missing problem is not the problem.

I want to specify, that before installing MP8 i had only MP4 update.

it so big problem.. :/

Which files are responsible for dft/DWG/dxf convertation ? We would like to replace those files from clear, not updated copy of solid edge..

Find a solution! Smiley Happy

 

Yes, after update, font dissapeared from autocad font list, so wee added the font again from drop down list, but you need to rename the same name autocad font on the left side.

 

Few pictures if anyone else will face this problem Smiley Happy
