Insert Autocad Drawing RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having  a problem inserting an Autocad drawing into a Word 2007 document. It inserts it, but the scale is not maintained and it even crunches/ distorts it.

    Does anyone have any idea on how to make this properly function?

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

     

    You can compare the following steps to try again.

    Insert an AutoCAD drawing

    1.On the Insert menu, click CAD Drawing.

    2.Locate the CAD file and click Open.

    3.To accept the default CAD drawing settings, click OK.

    Note   The default CAD drawing settings are designed to ensure optimal results when you insert a CAD drawing.

    It is best to avoid adjusting the default settings unless you have a specific aim in mind.

    When you insert a drawing in AutoCAD DWG or DXF format, you insert the last saved spatial view of the CAD drawing.

    A CAD drawing may have been saved in model space or paper space.

     

    Regards,
