Q - question

Error: expected font (xxxx) is not available.

A - answer If your Inventor displays the error message "Expected font is not available" during the printing of a drawing, it means that your drawing contains fonts (texts) which are not available on your computer. In the parenthesis there is the name of the missing font (e.g. Isocpeur, System, ...).

Install the missing font (TTF, see "Add font" in the Windows Control panels) or set the alternative font option in the Registry.

Run REGEDIT and in the branch


set the key "Default Font" to the name of the alternate font which will be used if the original font is not available on your system.
