[CE] DWG:could not find SHX font

Any ideas how to check which lines are missing shp symbols when opening a DWG file? The message "could not find SHX font [dgnlstyle]" is not very informative as I would like to know which line was not correctly converted to DWG. The missing symbols are replaced with dots or question marks but it is only visual indicator or is there some way to actually scan and find those broken lines?

  • I suggest creating a new post in the programming forum. Maybe there could have a VBA who can help you
    [Programming Forum] How to check which lines are missing shp symbols when opening a DWG file?

    When peering into the intimate details of a file, particularly a file originating from another application, VBA is not a good tool for the job.  VBA's purpose is to automate user actions, which it does very well.

    Understanding DWG content and why MicroStation fails to interpret it is not a user task.  It requires someone knowledgeable about file formats and how MicroStation's DWG schema is designed to accommodate those dusty corners of another app.  VBA is not a substitute for a MicroStation DWG expert.

    The AutoCAD guru at Bentley Systems was , but I haven't seen any activity from him in recent (2021) times.  Is there a new Bentley Systems DWG expert?
