Here's my Arial file and one for "Bauhaus Md BT" in the Zip file.
Unzip and place the two SLW files in your "…Documents\TurboCAD 2017 Professional x64\Symbols\My Symbols" directory.
Go to "My Symbols" in the Library Palette.
If "My Symbols" doesn't show these two folders ("Arial 3D Font" & "Bauhaus Md BT") in the palette window, right-click and choose "Reload Library".
These two libraries should show up after reloading.
When the Symbol is inserted into the drawing, it comes in as a Group; I usually leave the symbol(s) as is until I need to Scale up/down as one selection.
The Arial file was made long ago where everything was formatted to a Region. Once the region is exploded ‘one time’, you should be left with Lines, Arcs, Ellipses & Elliptical Arcs.
The Bauhaus file was done a couple of years back and has just Lines-n-Arcs, etc. inside the Group. I rarely use polylines, except where it may be all straight line segments.
Since this is for Platinum, I use the "Use Compound Profile" option when extruding. When I activate the Simple Extrude tool, I'll enter a Height and Lock in the value (Ctrl+L).
I'll hold the "Shift" key and start selecting the items to be extruded.
When finished selecting, I'll Tab into the Height field and "Enter". I found if I selected first (where I had a large amount of items to select, then attempted to insert a Height value, it could be "minutes" between each number/period. With the number already inserted, hardly any waiting to start the extrusion process.
