Some time ago I posted this Idea. The Ideas Forum has been updated and shows a post date 27-Jan-21, which is the date that the Forum was updated, not the date that I created that idea.
That Idea also shows my suggestion to be shipped. If that is the case, how can we obtain that TrueType font library? Do you have any comments, Eduardo Lazzarotto?
I do not believe that Bentley is finished migrating, categorizing, nor updating the data at this point.(The new, third-party Ideas forum is a mess)
I certainly would like that font! or even just a TTF of just engineering symbols

Yes, something many of us have wanted, even needed, for a long time. But it may still have one pitfall, my clients won't have the font. Maybe we can get Microsoft to include it with Windows. The standard Windows fonts lack even many of the basic stuff we use every day. I believe I've looked at most all of them.

Looks like we users need to build a true type symbols font version then give it to Bentley to distribute as an general update ...
Before we go too far BENTLEY DON'T BURY this post in ideas .. hardly anybody goes there to look for anything and especially now you have to create new login... forget it!
So for somebody to do this they will need a list of things to be included
here is some I would like
CL centre Line where letters are C over the L like the olden days drafting
> = The real math version of greater than or equal to and the opposite Less than or equal to ie where the > has a sloped parallel under bar
Diam symbol like the greek lower case Omega? but same size as the capital version
Ohms symbol like the greek capital Omega
squared power of 2
cubed power of 3
Yes I know we have some of these in lots of others font combinations and we use the favorite symbols but to have them in one place as a Cad symbols font would be great it would be sort of like windows windings...
It would make it so much easier to look in one place to add to the a favorites in symbols function in text editor and make drawings more consistent looking
once we have a complete or adequate list then a more clever person than me can get hold of one of the free true type font makers and import , modify , create what is needed..
Now the only drawback I see after building it would be getting it to bentley, then getting bentley to deliver it as an update to all users fonts folder...and building it into new installs for all versions from now on... and on occasion adding extras to it...

Thank you for reaching out. Comments are now updated for this idea (https://microstation.ideas.aha.io/ideas/MS-I-219), including the following by a Bentley colleague.

Bentley does not supply True Type Font file but relies on those installed in the Windows/Fonts section. It appears that OpenRoads Designer CONNECT Edition is supplying TTF's but I do not think this will happen with MicroStation CONNECT Edition in the future. It would be better to search for companies that might produce these custom True Type Fonts but there is a simple way to create a TTF from any RSC font that you may have customized.
Can you please confirm if this solves your issue? I will also check with the team to post a wiki on this topic if needed.

Can anyone confirm that those fonts from ORD provide the much-requested drafting characters?
