AutoCAD fonts

AutoCAD fonts are stored in SHX files.

Recent versions of AutoCAD may have more AutoCAD fonts files compared older versions, but if you are still not satisfied with the number of fonts AutoCAD is putting to your use, here is a trick you need to consider using.

You might opt to download more SHX AutoCAD fonts, or simply use your windows font in AutoCAD.

To let AutoCAD see the fonts downloaded, you need to paste those files in the right directory.
