Advance Steel 2017 on AutoCAD 2017 - Windows 10 missing Arial Narrow font



If you open a prototype on a Windows 10 machine and notice that the text is messed up, check the font type under the text style. It may be the font is missing from the Window system.

Look under Fonts in the Control Panel and expand the Arial font. If you don't see “Arial Narrow”, then it needs to be added to the system.
