Even-though I have assigned Arial font to be the default font if AutoCad fonts are not found, still the translator prompts for SHX fonts. Is there a way that ArchiCad would convert all the fonts of a DWG (with out knowing what they are) to a specific default font , that way we do not get the prompt at each instant of translation?

Then you have to tell them NOT to send you DWGs, but to do eTransmit. All SHXs will be packed in. Oh, yes, you will have to explain them where to find it ...
It is absolutely incredible how computer and software illiterate most computer users are.
