Substituting Fonts in AutoCad
Over the years I have looked at several different CAD software packages, and Sublime Text for Autodesk is probably my favorite. It’s a little pricey for a personal use, but a Pro Pack purchase will get you Sublime Text for AutoCAD, SolidWorks, and Microsoft Publisher.
Any program that has a macro recorder, you can use it for recording your work in the text format of your choice. One thing to be aware of is the difference between Mac users and Windows users.
Both operating systems are capable of working with various types of files and text. There is a difference in the fonts you see, where the programs are on the screen, and the formatting options the programs allow. The way they work is similar, but there are differences you need to know about before trying to work on the same file.
For example, text files look like pixels, and the labels, lines, and numbers look like pixels. The only difference is in the way you can edit the text.
Macs are set up to read a number of formats. Programs such as AutoCAD and Microsoft Publisher are included with the Sublime Text Pro Pack. You can open .dwg and .psd files.
SolidWorks is also available as a part of Sublime Text for AutoCad Homework Help Online. These files do not convert well when opened into the main programs.
To make changes, you must first open the text format you wish to work in, such as a .dwg file. You then choose the source from the Format menu.
You will also need to pick the font option, which allows you to switch the text to a different font. It is only possible to select this after you have selected the format in which you wish to work. You must also look for the typeface option, and this is done by right clicking the font option, choosing the typeface menu option, and then choosing the typeface you wish to use.
The color of the text you need to open has to be chosen from the Color Menu. This does not take you past the first few characters but allows you to change the color for the entire file, using the font list option.
Now you have a single file of text, you can modify using your desired fonts, lines, and symbols. Text can be changed like this throughout the file.
When working with SolidWorks, a separate application has to be used to record your work in text format. Sublime Text for AutoCAD uses a macro recorder.
Both Sublime Text for AutoCAD and SolidWorks are recognized by SolidWorks when you switch text. This allows you to save your changes and continue to work using your preferred program, as you make changes to your work in SolidWorks.
