Older MicroStation versions (V8, V8 2004, V8 XM) allowed users to edit or manage RSC font library files called the FONTEDIT tool. With the release of MicroStation V8i this tool was removed.
Bentley have now included in MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 3) the Font Utilities tool which can be used to create or modify RSC type of fonts.
The Font Utilities tool can be used to transfer fonts from one Resource (RSC) library file to another as well as changing the Font Names, Descriptions or Numbers of the individual font file. Review existing font symbols of each font.
This Font Utilities tool won't allow creating any new fonts or add/remove font symbols.
***Please Note ***
This application is only intended to help with your current need to use or modify a custom RSC font.The best practice for future releases of MicroStation V8i, and beyond, is to use True Type Fonts (TTF) when a current RSC font does not meet your needs instead of creating an RSC font.
Font Utilities can be loaded running a Key-in commands:
mdl load fontutilities; font utilities dialog
After that Font Utilities dialog will be loaded and you can load RSC file and review existing fonts in it:
From there, it is a simple identification of the source and target RSC files and then a drag and drop.
