Simplex Font

Simplex Font

Postby sjscoach » Tue Dec 21, 2021 4:52 pm

Sorry, I did the forum for this, didn't find.

I just noticed that the Simplex font is no longer an option?

I'm new to Carlson/Intellicad and thought it was there before.

How would I import it?

Thanks for any thoughts/time

The default location for fonts on my system is:
Code: Select all
C:\Program Files\Carlson2021_ICAD10\Support\Fonts


I put all my fonts in
Code: Select all
P:\CAD\Fonts
and add the folder to the support search path. See image:

You are correct, Intellicad does not ship with an shx font name simplex.shx. Intellicad has suitable replacements for each shx font which have "ic-" before them. Either re-assign all your styles that reference simplex.shx to reference ic-simplex.shx or copy all the ic- shx fonts and save copies with the "ic-" removed here
C:\Program Files\Carlson2022_ICAD10_1\Support\Fonts

I do not recommend copying Autocad shx fonts into this folder.

Nice to see some discussion here...

Thought I would add that the default installation should create a font map file:
Code: Select all
C:\Program Files\Carlson2022_ICAD10_1\Support\icad.fmp


The font map is typically configured to map the common Autocad font file names to the Intellicad equivalent so you shouldn't need to actually copy and rename the files. For example the lines for romans and simplex look like:

Code: Select all
romans.shx;ic-romans.shx
simplex.shx;ic-simplex.shx


The active font map file can be checked or set using the FONTMAP command or at the bottom of the Intellicad CONFIG dialog.
