I installed our corporate typeface TTF Font in Windows 10. I'm running DCAD V19. I've rebooted twice, the new font shows up in Word and Outlook just fine. But not in DCAD!
Anyone have any thoughts on next steps?? Yes, I have both SHX & TTF turned on in Text. Please tell me I just missed something really stupid!

Just a couple of wild guesses ..

- Add the Windows/Fonts path in the path settings?

- Reboot the computer?

Locate the font in C:\Windows\Fonts. Double-click on the file to display the font preview dialog (you can also right-click on the file and select Preview). If it's a collection of fonts, you'll need to open the top-level font folder first.

In the upper-left corner of the preview dialog you'll see the name of the font followed by ether (TrueType) or (OpenType). DataCAD only supports TrueType (*.ttf) fonts, not OpenType (*.otf).
