RE: AutoCAD R14 question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
This issue has been discussed in great detail previously. You should/could search through the e-mail archives, check past issues of Online magazine (a SEAOSC listserv insert back in the good old days) or check past issues of CADalyst. I also believe this document is at the SEAOSC website. I believe in all cases, the articles were written by our resident AutoCAD guru, Mark Middlebrook.
To provide a quick answer to your question, it is not as easy as it should be. You need to import your Word document into AutoCAD using Mtext and a monospaced font. Please see the above referenced resources for additional details.

Subject: AutoCAD R14 question

Our office is experimenting with importing text directly from Microsoft Word to AutoCAD (General Notes, etc.).  Does anyone know how to accomplish this without losing the tab settings, indents, and underlines?
Thanks for any help in advance.
