How to copy AutoCAD fonts to a new machine?

A - answer I need to copy my fonts and text styles to a new computer. How to do it?

First install the font files. For SHX fonts you just need to copy the .shx files to your new PC. In case of TrueType fonts you need to install your TTF font files in Windows (Control Panels > Fonts > Add) - AutoCAD will then use them automatically.

If you have used predefined (named) text styles, make sure you copy also the drawing template file (DWT) containing these text style definitions.
