FONT

Can anyone recommend a good font for drawings?  (Where #1 does not look like an L).

Thank you

Re: FONT

We use ISOFONT. You have to type it in as it is not on a list, but it fixes exactly what you are running into.

Re: FONT

If you would like, you will need to set a config option to " use_pre_wildfire_text_font" yes - remove the quotation marks!!!!

and copy this attachment into the C:\Program Files\PTC\Creo 2.0\Common Files\M190\x86e_win64\text\usascii or where ever your load point is

this is the modified version of the ascii.fnt for 64 bit workstations. Make sure this is used on a 64 bit machine - it will crash a 32 bit machine.

It has the seraphs on the 1 and a / thru the zero.

(rename the original ascii.fnt to asci_orig.fnt)

As you can see, it was used in my past life for many years.

OOPS! that's the 32 bit font - I'll grab the 64 bit one in the morning.

Re: FONT

I agree, ISOFONT is the one to use, so a "1" looks like a one and not an "L".  You can make it your default font in the drawing setup file.

Here is the correct ascii.fnt  for 64 bit

Re: FONT

We switched to ISOFONT about 5 years ago and all the complaints stopped.

Be sure to redo your template files and the tables in your template drawings, too.

Re: FONT

I use Arial. Similar to Helvetica, but more ubiquitously available; e.g. it comes pre-installed on all windows machines. Add "pro_font_dir C:\Windows\Fonts" to your config.pro, or it won't be among the available options. Without that line, Creo only has access to the fonts that came with it, not all the ones on the machine.  (CG Triumvirate is also similar, and comes with Creo.  But, I think Arial is preferred, as it doesn't need to be embedded or stroked in PDFs.)

Re: FONT

I looked at this very hard several years ago.

I found the distinguishing characters L, I, 1, & l are each differentiated where there is no ambiguity in the ISO30985FONT font.

O and 0 are still very close, but there is still differentiation.

I find the mono-space of ISO30985FONT useful.

I also stroke all fonts for drawings.
