Working with Text Styles and Fonts in DWG Workmode

In DWG workmode:

  • You can use (*.shx) or TrueType fonts, since both MicroStation and AutoCAD support them.
  • In AutoCAD, every text element in a DWG file must have an associated text style. When a DGN file is saved to DWG format, MicroStation automatically creates a like-named DWG text style for each used text style.

    If the DGN file contains text elements placed without a text style, MicroStation automatically creates a text style for each font used to place these elements. MicroStation determines these style names by applying the naming template specified by the Text Style Name Template setting in the Save As DWG/DXF Options dialog.

  • The MS_DWGFONTPATH configuration variable lets you specify the directory where all DWG fonts are stored.
