AutoCAD: Capture screen to Word document file

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
To incorporate an AutoCAD detail into Micorsoft Word document,
I used to be able to capture the drawing on the screen in
AutoCAD 13 as a bitmap and pasted it into the Microsoft Paint.
The extra step does two things for me.  (1) change the color-scaled
bitmap to gray-scaled bitmap and  (2) invert the color.  Insert the
gray-scaled bitmap file keeps my word document size in reasonable
size and invert the color save inks when I print.

I can't do that in R14 anymore.   Here are my problems:

(1) Capture is capturing the whole screen (not just the
 working area.)
(2) Copy-link capture the working  area to the Clipboard
 but I can't paste it into Paint.
(3) Can't paste Clipboard into Paint.

What is the workaround out there?  Are there any other
software that can do the job?
