Creating and naming text styles

Fonts are character sets that consist of letters, numbers, punctuation marks, and symbols. Each font is stored in its own font file. Text styles apply additional formatting to fonts. You can create multiple text styles based on the same font, changing the various characteristics to alter the appearance of the font. To create a new text style, you assign formatting characteristics to a font.

progeCAD uses *.shx font files and provides a selection of fonts. These fonts are located in the progeCAD/Fonts directory. You can also use any font designed to work with AutoCAD. Many fonts are available from third-party vendors.


NOTE Text style names created or renamed in progeCAD can have up to 31 characters and cannot include spaces. progeCAD will, however, display longer text style names and names containing spaces, such as text styles created in AutoCAD 2000.

    • Choose Settings > Explore Text Styles.
    • On the Settings toolbar, click the Explore Text Styles tool ().
