How to set font (style) for Amnotes, surface texture symbols?

A - answer If the texts in your notes and symbols are displayed in a too bold font, you have probably not set properly the note properties for your drawing standard in AutoCAD Mechanical.

In the Options dialog on the AM:Standard tab (the AMOPTIONS command) double-click on the standard (e.g. "DIN") on the top of the tree (on the right). In the "Standard Properties" dialog then check the option "Link to Dimension Style", click on the radio button "Apply to Leaders Only" and in the list of predefined text styles select the required style (font).

For a one-time change of the font you can also directly set the text style ACISOTS.
