I have an Acad 2011 drawing which I am opening in Bricscad v 11.4.1. There is a problem with the fonts, Bricscad gives me the message:
Substituting font "ROMANS.SHX" by default font.
The default font is simplex.shx. I tried changing it to romans.shx but it made no difference. I copied the 3 fonts from an Acad 2004 installation to the Bricscad fonts folder but it didn't help either.
Can anyone tell me how to fix this and get the fonts looking right?

The first thing to check is that the font directory is within the support file search path. It should be there as part of the installation but for whatever reason I once lost it too! Open up the settings dialog and search for "Search". If that isn't the issue then someone else may have another idea.

Thanks Daniel, that was the problem all right. Support, Fonts and Help were all pointing to Bricscad v10 instead of v11.
I'm not sure how that happened, it was a fresh install and my previous version was v9. I think I tried v10 at some point but I didn't keep it and maybe the settings got stuck in the registry. That shouldn't interfere with a new installation though.
