If you open a prototype on a Windows 10 machine and notice that the text is messed up, check the font type under the text style. It may be the font is missing from the Window system.
Look under Fonts in the Control Panel and expand the Arial font. If you don’t see “Arial Narrow”, then it needs to be added to the system.
The same thing can be found under the Windows font in the C: drive.
If you have the font on a Windows 7 machine, you can copy it out and then install it in the Windows 10 machine location.
Sample "Arial Narrow" font.
Reboot the AutoCAD/Advance Steel Session and the font should then be present and the prototype text/style/font will have reverted back to the expected arrangement.
