Re: AutoCAD: Capture screen to Word document

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Even if I had any friends that were Mac Heads, I wouldn't admit it :o)!
Going through a 3rd piece of software like Hijaak or McNeel's PlotPak would
take about 20 seconds instead of 5 minutes on a Mac. Besides, I'm on AutoCAD
R14. Can your chums read that file (heh, heh)?

This is just one of those things, as Roger Turk pointed out, was easier with
WordPerfect for DOS than it is for Windows using OLE. Amazingly, OLE doesn't
do a very good job of taking an AutoCAD file and inserting it into a Word
doc with the line weights, etc.

Thanks anyway,
Bill Allen
