    Default Linking Photos

    I'm using AutoCAD 2005 ver.N.63.0

    What is the easiest way to (and how do you) link a photo(s) (jpg or tif) to a block in dwg?

    Do you mean "link" as in "hyperlink"?

    If so, select the block and in the Properties panel, click the (...) button where is says Hyperlink. Then navigate to your image file.

    Here is a question for you... Is there a way to disable the minimizing of autocad when cntrl-clicking on a hyperlinked block? Its rather annoying having to pull autocad back up again & again when going thru several hyperlinked blocks within a drawing.
