Q - question

The Tolerance dialog displays j-r-i-f-b instead of symbols.

A - answer Wrong display of GD&T symbols in the dialog for geometric tolerances (the symbols are OK in the drawing) means, that one of the AutoCAD standard fonts - GDT - is missing in your system. This TrueType font is used a.o. for the TOLERANCE dialog.


Install this font - either with the AutoCAD Repair installation, or manually from the AutoCAD installation media - right-click on the TTF file from the folder (example): x86\acad\Windows\Fonts\gdt_____.ttf and choose Install.
