When you import AutoCAD drawings that contain text, you can map the AutoCAD SHX fonts to TrueType fonts so they appear correctly in Revit. You can map to any of your existing fonts.
For SHX fonts that are not mapped, Revit
will use a similar font, but the results are unpredictable.
To map TrueType fonts
- Open the shxfontmap.txt file in a text editor.
This file is located within the particular Revit product version folder (e.g. Autodesk Revit Architecture 2012) in the following path:
- On a new line, enter the SHX file name.
- Press Tab.
- Enter the name of the font to map it to.
- Save and close the file.
You do not need to restart Revit for the font mapping to take effect. If you have already imported the file, you will need to import it again.
