Q - question

Unreadable system dialogs in Inventor (symbols, japanese, arabic)

A - answer After a change in Windows my Inventor dialogs are displayed with math symbols, in Japanese, Chinese or Arabic.

This was probably caused by uninstalling or damaging the font set in Inventor as system font (the font Symath used in the picture). Reinstall back the font used in Inventor (default: Tahoma), reset the user interface (profile), or change back the font setting in the Application options dialog (Options > General > Text appearance).

On the (unreadable) tab General, select the highlighted select-box and press "T" to choose the standard font Tahoma again. Pick "Apply" (the bottom right button) and close the dialog.
