Re: Autocad to Wordperfect

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Sorry Patrick, the WMF solution doesn't help at all. The main problem is
manually adjusting lineweights and colors. This was the beauty of being able
to import an HPGL plot file in that these characteristics can be adjusted
(and saved) in the plot file definition. McNeel's PlotPak supposedly does
this through a Windows MetaFile (after installing a virtual printer), but at
a price ($250).

BTW, just about anything can read a .wmf file. I just don't know what is the
difference between importing a *.wmf file and OLE.

Bill Allen
