AC 10 DWG Import: Greek text

Geoff Briggs

Has anybody else seen this: Importing a DWG into ArchiCAD 10 results in Greek text. I mean literally Greek It even shows a missing Greek font in the list (see screenshot). Thing is I know the text is sent as Arial, and it works fine on ArchiCAD 9.

I think I've tried everything. It happens with:
Build 966 & 987.
All the preconfigured translators.
3 different computers (all Mac PPC w/ OS 10.4)

And changing the font does not fix it Some fonts, like Times, keep the Greek, others show mostly empty boxes. Since it works with ArchiCAD 9 on the same machines I'm inclined to think it's an ArchiCAD 10 bug as opposed to a font error or some other operating system problem. Any ideas?

I'm having the exact same problem. Have you gotten anywhere on this?

I have sent some files to Graphisoft and have asked my coworker who discovered the problem to find out what font(s) were used in the original DWG as well as get the DWG author to resend the file with a known font (Arial). I'll let you know.
