Original topic: “ugly text strings in a draught, after Visio 2003 AutoCAD file conversion”


I have a Visio2003 mnemonic, and I tried to convert it to AutoCad file format (interchange and other), but this conversion makes ugly any text string in a result draught, like this (look at the attached QCAD.png):

 "\fArial|b0|i1|;Насос шнековый (для откачки осадка)"
 ... and so on.

I tried to open result draught in a DraftSight - it works with strings fine, there are no ugly string on the screen.
If I try to open CAD files created by DraftSight in QCAD 3.4.6 - I have an ugly text strings too.

A process of manual corrections of this ugly text strings in QCAD is very very laborious, I think, you need to make a some new instruments to automatic conversion strins like this “\fArial|b0|i1|;сборный...” to strting “сборный...” by checking some postions in your new instruments and clicking “Apply” button.
