System and drafting fonts just changed on there own, NX11

System and drafting fonts just changed on there own, NX11

System and drafting fonts just changed on there own, NX11

I've found that all my drafting seed files have switched to the "AmdtSymbols" font.
Which is chaos!

Even the UCS icon is using this font now in model space

Anyone else ever have something like this happen?

I've been using NX for 25 years... NEVER seen this one!

TIA for any feedback

RE: System and drafting fonts just changed on there own, NX11

Each part has a "font table" that lists the fonts in use. You can get to it by file -> utilities -> character fonts; the font listed in the #1 position is the default font. The font table controls the font used in the drafting notes.

However, if the UCS icon is also using the new font, it sounds like there is more going on here... I don't think the font table controls this. If you have switched to a "theme" with "system" or "system font" in the title, NX will use the windows font for the menus and other elements. Even so, this shouldn't switch you to the AmdtSymbols font.

If the font table looks ok, I'd suggest running a part cleanup and using ug_inspect_part to check for corruption. If nothing helps, you might want to contact support.
