Is there any way to convert .CHR font files to .shx font files? I have old Cheapware floppy disks and a Cheapware Volume 1 CD that I obtained when I was using DataCAD 3 and would like to use what I can from them in versions 12,19LT, and 21, if I decide to buy version 21. Any help that can be provided is greatly appreciated.
Listed on the Datacad DNN Forum page, they list convertors, but the links are not there.
In older versions of Dcad, these were in the chr folder.
One would use CHR2SHP, then SHP2SHX.
