How to add a font file for use with AutoCAD.
AutoCAD supports TrueType and SHX fonts.
Installing an SHX font:
Copy .shx files into the Fonts folder within the AutoCAD program folder:
C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD 20xx\Fonts
Note: PostScript fonts (.pfb) and shape files (.shp) can be converted to .shx by using the COMPILE command in AutoCAD.
Installing a TrueType font:
AutoCAD reads TrueType (.ttf) fonts that are installed in the operating system. TTF files do not go into AutoCAD's own Fonts folder.
Copy .ttf files into: C:\Windows\Fonts
As an alternative, right-click a .ttf file and choose Install.
Note: Windows XP and Vista systems require going to the Control Panel and opening Fonts and then using "Install new font" under the Font menu.
