[v8i] MicroStation Word Processor takes a long time to load when trying to edit a .rsc font.

Is there a way to make the text in the word processor show up in a standard font (not .rsc) so that it doesn't have to convert the .rsc font to a temporary true type font every time you edit the text? This happens the first time you edit text in a MicroStation session, but it can take up to a minute to open the word processor, and users sometimes think that the program is hung up.

  • Hello Chris,

    Could it be that your MicroStation temp folder (MS_TMP) is located on a network drive and as a result of that, it takes long before the .rsc is converted to a temp true type font and stored in the folder $(MS_TMP)GeneratedTTFonts\

    Are you cleaning up that temp folder after every MicroStation session?
    If not, the temp fonts will be available for the next session(s) as well.
    Could it be that you have limited access to that temp folder (not allowed to write in that folder) or that the files in that folder are corrupted somehow?

    To use and alternative font in the word processor, you can try setting the variable below:
    MS_WORD_PROCESSOR_DISPLAY_RSC_USING_DEFAULT_FONT = Arial
    This will display any active resource font in the word processor as if it is Arial.
    Note that the resulting text in your .dgn will still be in the .rsc format and hence may look quite different from what you see in the word processor.
