If you're tired of the same-old-look AutoCAD fonts, dress up your drawings with the new high-quality, high intelligence SMART FONTS, from Palisades Research. Smart Fonts are modeled after the most popular styles found in high-end desktop publishing packages. And since they've been created with great precision from true CAD lines and arcs, they remain good-looking to virtually any size. They'll give your drawings a stylish and professional look.
Each Smart Font includes a free copy of Font Tools, software
that brings to AutoCAD powerful text effects that you thought were
available only in desktop publishing.
NOTE: Image quality viewed on this page may vary dependant upon viewer used. Actual fonts are of excellent quality.
For example, there's KERNING, which is the intelligent spacing
of certain pairs of letters. When normally spaced, the 'A' and the
'W' are too far apart. Look how kerning remedies this.
And there's USER-DEFINED SPACING which allows you to insert even spacing between characters:
Kerning and Spacing can be applied globally to all text in a drawing,
selectively to all text of a particular style, or to individual text
All Smart Fonts are fully AutoCAD ready fonts (.SHX files) that you can plug in and use right away, just as you do the fonts that come with AutoCAD.
Each Smart Font comes in two forms:
Standard sets have normal 2D-looking characters
Cavalier sets have that "block letter" 3-D effect (not 3-D elements!) that makes text stand out.
Each font includes three variations:
Outlined characters redraw most quickly.
Low-Density Filled characters are stroke-filled and stay solid to 3/4" when plotted with a .50mm pen
High-Density Filled characters plot solid to 1.5"
And each includes both proportional (spacing based on character width) and mono spaced (all characters have identical spacing, for use with tables) versions. So, for every style there are up to12 fonts files.

(These fonts are regular .shx files and are not kernable).
