Font files and font conversion files

You can define the location of font files with the advanced option DXK_FONTPATH in the teklastructures.ini or your environment initialization filetext file that contains user interface definitions, start-up parameters, default settings, or advanced options

Initialization files are used when starting Tekla Structures and they can contain system-specific and user-specific advanced options that are used to configure Tekla Structures for different standards and the user’s individual style of working.

Initialization files have the file name extension .ini.

. For example, you can use fonts available in the folder ..\ProgramData\Trimble\Tekla Structures\<version>\environments\common\fonts.

This folder includes the following fonts:


Font type


Tekla Structures system font


Tekla Structures system font


Tekla Structures system font


Tekla Structures system font

Fonts are converted using font conversion files available in the same folder:




Used for converting Tekla Structures system fonts (Template Editor fonts) to Windows fonts in DWG/DXF export.


Used for converting True Type fonts to SHX fonts (font format understood by AutoCAD) in DWG/DXF export.


The Cyrillic fonts GOST 2.304-81 type A.ttf and GOST 2.304-81 type B.ttf are located in the C:\Windows\Fonts folder, not the ..\ProgramData\Trimble\Tekla Structures\<version>\environments\common\fonts folder.
