Shadow Font

Post by sgmckee » Mon Mar 06, 2006 9:25 am

I was looking for the font we commonly put on our map to show an underly map which we call a shadow font. I browsed the the fonts and I did not see it. It may be listed by another name. Is there a way to view what the fonts look like? Is there a shadow font by name somewhere?

Microsurveys Ghost font looks like a Shadow font.

I use the Dashed font.

If you Type Shadow Font on Google you will find many versions of it.

If you can locate the SHX file that you used in an older program, simply copy it into out FONTS folder under MSCAD2005, and you can start using it immediately, as desired.
