Title: Does BabaCAD support Chinese font in .DWG?
Post by: dllee on June 22, 2015, 03:58:49 am
BabaCAD is really good, small and fast!
My old .dwg files had Chinese text in them, but BabaCAD will show them as ...
When using SolidWorks Viewer, I can put chineset.shx to the viewer .exe folder, and then the viewer can show the Chinese text correctly.

Does BabaCAD support Chinese font in .DWG? If yes, How?

I tried put chineset.shx to BabaCAD .exe folder, but no any effect...

Thanks for question, as I forgot to write a note about character fonts support in BabaCAD. Currently, only latin and latin-extended fonts a supported (english, german, dutch, bosnian, croatian and all languages with characters in unicode page ranges 0000-01FF).

I recently finished support for non-latin (chinese,cyrillic,arabic...) fonts, and this will be include in next BabaCAD release.

Thanks, hope the new version will release soon...
If possible, I can do a beta tester for the Chinese Font in .dwg  ^__^

The beta version in http://www.babacad.com/ext/ was download and installed  "BabaCAD 1.3.5 beta (Mar-2016)", still can not show Chinese character.
Does this beta already support? if yes, how to let BabaCAD show chinese character?

I will put language packs soon, because executable starting too slow if all-languages  fonts are included. I will try to put Chinese patch first on the list.
