I learned mechanical drawing almost 50 years ago and never needed to to update my skills to the currently accepted best practices.  But I'd like to start using GD&T to annotate drawings, and what I see in the application doesn't seem to match what's in the user guide.  In particular the documents suggest that in the feature control frame tool I should be able to select from the GD&T symbols (for straightness, flatness, concentricity, etc.) from the scrollable lists, but I only see letters in the list (see attached screenshots). 

Where are the symbols?  Are these found in a font that I'm missing?

I had the exact same problem. I had to contact support to get the required font. Tim sent it to me and I installed it, easy to do.

Enjoy

Thanks!  It's nice to know I'm not overlooking the obvious.
