Saving to DWG

Tell me, please, I can't find a solution to the problem with saving fonts when opening a file saved from Archicad 24 to DWG format and opened in Autodesk Autocad 2022.
Fonts become blurry and clearly the font type is not the one that was before saving in the Archicad itself.
I threw fonts into the Fonts folder, into the Autocad fonts folder; I transferred the user profile, whose saving works fine, but does not help.
Does anyone know the solution?

Are you using a correct DXF/DWG translator and do you have the font conversion set up in the translator settings?

No. This item is not used.
I looked at one of the computers where it works correctly, this is also not configured there.

Is it possible to transfer all the program settings to another PC?

There is no font conversion until you set it up.

If another computer is working fine without it, then it is probably using a different translator, or other settings in the translator have been changed.

 

There is no import/export as such.

If you look on the 'good' machine in the translator setup, you will see where the translators are saved.

In my example (image attached), I actually save them in my library, so they are available to all who use it (the library is duplicated on everyone's machines).

So, copy the XML file from the 'good' machine to somewhere you can access from the 'bad' machine.

Browse on the 'bad' machine to find the file and add that translator.

See if that one works any better.

If you exchange your content with someone via .dwg often I recommend setting up a dedicated .dwg translator through a .dwg template file.

For font type/style conversion mapping you have it all explained here:
