    As far as I know, BobCAD uses its own internal fonts, and Windows Truetype fonts. If you find a Truetype font you like, be sure you install it within Windows, for BobCAD to see it. There may well be conversion software to turn other formats into Truetype fonts.

    I Googled free font celtic and this is one of the top results -

    Free celtic fonts - FontSpace

    Something there might be suitable, if not there are lots more sites yielded by the above Google Search,

    It works very well. I use Corel Draw X4 and the WTF feature is built in (as long as you have an open internet connection). The name is priceless of course

    I uploaded the "Murphy" sample and the correct font was the third one listed. It doesn't get any easier than that. Of course they make their money by selling you the font so it's unlikely they will offer a freebie. But once you know what to look for it's not hard to find a similar, free font using a search engine.
