Architects who cooperate with colleagues working on a different platform than they work on can sometimes experince the problem of missing fonts.
Let's see what you need to do to overcome this issue.
The file named XreadCfg.txt that is located in the Add-Ons folder of ARCHICAD can be used for replacing missing fonts independently from what platform they originate from. (Missing fonts appear in square brackets in the list of fonts in ARCHICAD.) This is how you need to edit this file:
The name of the missing font needs to be entered in the column of the opposite platform (even if the plan file originates from the same platform).
For example: on Windows you want to replace the font named "MissingFontName" by "Tahoma". This is what you need to insert in XreadCfg.txt:
If you want “Genova” on Mac, then:
Please pay special attention to the exact input of font names. Font names have to be identical with the form they appear with in the Font Menu of ARCHICAD (lower or upper case characters).
If the missing font used a special character set (e.g. Eastern European), then you have to refer to it in the column of the character set (charset), e.g. Eastern European: 238.
If the missing font used a special character set (e.g. Eastern European) and you would like to use another character set (e.g. Western European), then you have to refer to their appropriate character set (charset) values.
Please find these values in XReadCfg.txt under “! Available character sets on Windows and Macintosh platforms”:
