    Font changes to unreadable boxes when creating a reference plane

    David Wurmfeld

      I am experiencing problems trying to create reference geometry (plane). When the Plane Property Manager appears, it has all the requisite field boxes and icons, but instead of "First Reference", Second Reference"... text appearing, small empty boxes appear (like the font bounding box of characters that can't be printed).

       

      This makes it difficult to use if you do not know what the fields are to be a priori.

       

      I could not see anywhere a place to change the nationality of the character set being used... I am teaching a SolidWorks Fundamentals class and this only happens on the Instructor's computer  (Of Course)  and as far as I can tell, only with reference geometery selections.

       

      Any ideas?
