Text characters displaying differently between users MicroStation installs


Problem Description

When I open a file on one users PC the fonts display fine, yet on another some characters are missing, why?

Steps to Resolve

The MicroStation font resource file ( *.rsc ) used to create the text within the design file was not accessible to the one user and hence displaying incorrectly.

Copy the missing *.rsc file to the users PC at the location pointed to by the variable MS_FONTPATH


Check user is using the same configuration as others, such as the Project Configuration file where the MS_FONTPATH is defined.
