i don't think you can use .shx fonts (Autocad Fonts) in Revit, unless you can re-create it as a windows systems font and load it

Revit uses standard Windows TTF just like any other Windows program. There are plenty of places to get freeware fonts or purchase them like www.fonts.com and of course www.adobe.com I simply use the standard Windows fonts as I know everyone else has them. Tom

and while we're on this topic, what is the name of the font that looks like hand-printing? Thanks! JOHN Post edited on 2006-05-04 14:38:48

There are hundreds of them out there. Here are a few: http://www.fonts.com/findfonts/mondosearchresults.htm?st=12&kid=architect Of course Windows has "City Blueprint" The biggest thing to watch for is that you get a comprehensive font family with all the font flavors like bold and narrow. There are even services out there that will make a font based on your own custom lettering. Tom Post edited on 2006-05-04 14:47:39
