International glyphs in fonts

Post by andrew » Wed Feb 27, 2019 10:16 pm

From a QCAD user:
When converting drawings using dwg2bmp (or dwg2pdf, dwg2svg, dwg2maptiles), international glyphs are replaced by question marks.

The fonts that ship with QCAD do not contain the complete set of characters defined in the Unicode standard.

You might want to substitute fonts which do not contain the international glyphs required using the -fs or -font-substitution switch. For example, to substitute the standard font in all text entities with Arial, use:

Code: Select all

dwg2bmp -fs standard Arial -o output.png input.dxf
