The silly thing is that by default the settings for OLE objects are such that they might not plot. Here’s how: Have an excel spread sheet saved. That’s one of the reasons I avoid using OLE objects. Unfortunately your version of AutoCAD is too old to have the Table > DataLink feature that. The Object Inserted into AutoCAD is an OLE, and I can not get this to PLOT. I do know if you insert the Object as a TIFF or a JPEG it will Plot.

Why are Images or OLE Object not Printing from AutoCAD?

We had an issue with OLE objects in our case an excel sheet that would shift itself down when plotting, the workaround we found was to check the “plot upside down” button and everything plotted fine from there. If you can then send me a pm with your email address, then I will convert the pdf to an image file and email it to you, I would post it on here but Nt expect the file size would be too high.

I tried to take screen shots, but my computer locked up. I haven’t managed to convert pdf to an image file with the pixels going berserk, although what we have done is printed the pdf and scanned it as a jpeg and inserted it auotcad way, it objectt be worth a try I guess.

Looking at other threads although not Acad: I have a pdf, opened in Acrobat, put noot clipboard as a graphic.

By all means email me the pdf and I will be happy to convert it for you, you never know it nto work out. Late yesterday I tried plotting my drawing without changing to landscape, and it showed up on the plotter, but the size was all wrong. You are commenting using your Facebook account.
