We are working with Revit 2009 and exporting to Autocadd 2007.

 The dimension font is ARchitxt in Revit; however Autocadd turns it into "Standard" text.  All other texts, tags etc remain ARchitxt.  I export with "no overrides" to keep the text "bylayer and bycolor"  Please, no debate on why we use ARchitxt.  It's a legacy.

 Thanks in advance,

JSA

Sounds like you will have to open your autocad files and change it back.

Revit and Autocad use two different types of font.

Revit = True Type Font (architxt.tff)

Autocad = Shape Font (architxt.shx)

You'll probably notice Revit does not export text quite to the right scale either.
