Fonts for Ref-Des

Hello,

 

Xpedition VX1.2

When we create silkscreen gerber files, the ref-des are not exactly identical as we see them in the layout.

I assume they are not "translated" or mapped correctly from layout to gerbers.

What font type or settings does one use to get a what-you-see-is-what-you-get outcome in gerbers?

 

We have a similar problem with assembly ref-des.

When we print out, in Extended Print, the assembly to a PDF file, the ref-des are changed to a different font.

What font type or settings does one use to get a what-you-see-is-what-you-get outcome in PDFs?

 

Is there a font type that works well in both cases?

 

I appreciate any input on this topic.

 

Thank you,
