How to add a TrueType font into AutoCAD?

A - answer TrueType fonts (.TTF) cannot be added to AutoCAD (unlike SHX) just by copying into the Fonts folder. TrueType fonts are Windows system fonts which have to installed into Windows.

In the Windows Control Panels (WinXP/Vista) choose Fonts and in the File menu select "Install new font". In Windows 7 just drag the TTF file to this Fonts window or right-click on the TTF file and choose Install.
