    Default Rotated Image Disappears

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I've tried both draging an image into Autocad and importing it in as a block. When I try to rotates the image it either rotates around a point (but doesn't actually rotate itself) or rotates and disappears only leaving a white outline. How can I properly rotate an image?

    Have you tried using the Xref Manager to insert the image? How about pasting it as an OLE object? Those are the recommended options.

    I did try pasting the image into its own drawing and referencing that drawing using the Xref manage, but it didn't work. How do I paste the image in as an OLE object?

    EDIT: I figured it out. To do this copy the image, click on home tab -> paste (on clipboard area) -> paste special, then click 'image entity'. That's the only option I've found that allows for proper rotation.

    Thanks for your help.

    You need to use IMAGEATTACH (INSERT>RASTER IMAGE REFERENCE)

    OLE objects cannot be rotated.
