Try just putting your fonts into the load point. This should also work for user fonts in your drawings. (text folder). Also, what kind of fonts are they? ttf?

Hello XCAD sir,

Thank you sir, I too facing this problem. But

Where to use this option pro_font_dir, if you give some procedure, it will be help ful.

Thank you,


Utilities > options

write the above option, and with browse, search for the directory you have your font.

don't forget to save your config if this option makes solves your problem.

hello XCAD:

why can't i find the option in pro2000i, Utilities >preference>edit config>, there don't have pro_font_dir
Dear voctory

As I knew Pro/Engineer supports only TRUE TYPE FONTS(.ttf).

Get font files of these type and simply copy them in the TEXT folder of your Pro/E.You can borrow the fonts available with your windows OS.

Search for windows --> fonts folder.copy the true type font files from there and paste them in the TEXT folder of your Pro/E.

The best way is to place your font files in a seperate folder and set that folder as your fonts folder for Pro/E.

You can do this by setting the option 'pro_font_dir' with the value as the path to your fonts folder.
