After publishing a drawing that contains SHX fonts to PDF from AutoCAD Electrical, the text in the PDF is lighter and thinner than expected and has a faded appearance.
To correct the behavior, use one of the following methods:
- Change the system variable AEPDFFONTALT to "Off" (zero).
- Edit the AutoCAD Electrical font-mapping file (acade.fmp).
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\AutoCAD Electrical 201x\R2x.x\enu\Support
(Where the 'x' represents a value which varies between versions.)
