Re: Autocad to Wordperfect

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I can tell neither one of us is making any money this afternoon :o).

I installed SP2 (again), shut down both sessions of AutoCAD I was running as
well as my e-mail tried it again and it worked! In fact, it works real well.
I can go into the imported graphic and edit it (change colors, etc.)
although this defeats the point of the "one-step" process I was looking for.

So, if you ever do want to venture into the world of Windows, WP8 will
import graphics (and do a lot more than 6.2).

Thanks again,
