Font does not plot to PDF as shown on drawing or print preview.

I cant get the fonts straight.  I have many drawings with Swiss721 fonts, and they show o.k. on screen and preview, but plot to a script font in PDF's

I have tried renaiming the ICAD.FMP file, adding path to the windows, an old ACAD, and the Progecad 2010 font files with no luck.

Progecad 2010 works o.k., but consistent crashing problems with textmasks(wipeout)made me try 2013.  

The lack of manual for 2013 doesnt help.

Have you narrowed the scope of the problem with your font to be the path? It sounds more like a problem plotting the font than a missing font file. If it is displaying correctly in progeCAD but is not plotting correctly it could be that the font typeface is somehow not interpreted correctly. You didn't mention what type of font files this is, either truetype or SHX. If SHX you may have to recompile the font from the font file source code. An option if the problem is indeed the location of the font try copying it into the specific font folder identified in the tools->options->paths dialog.
