hole annotation problem

hole annotation problem

hole annotation problem

(OP)
Inventor is having trouble showing hole annotation symbols correctly for me. I created a custom hole annotation to show what inventor does when it tries to place an annotation symbol: http://danielwong125.tripod.com/temp/holes.jpg. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thank you.

RE: hole annotation problem

Does it appear correctly for the standard hole notes?  Trying to determine if this is a font or IV problem.

What do you mean, inv problem? I've tried changing demension style fonts to times new roman and verdana, but I'm still having the same problem :(

RE: hole annotation problem

Ah that's probably it.  The decimal, diameter etc.. symbols are represented by a font named AIGDT and AMGDT.  Changing them to a font other than this will cause problems.

Make sure you even have these fonts on your system also.  They sometimes get deleted when uninstalling software.

Awsome. That worked perfectly. Thanks Sean. I deleted some fonts a while back because I had alot of similar and seemingly useless fonts. Obviously, I did not realize that I'd be needing those two... Scarey how you knew which ones they were ;). THanks!

RE: hole annotation problem

When you've used IV as long as I have you begin to hear all the problems.. :)
