Opened with paint, selected all, copied, pastespec, picture (metafile) but the image is not embedded. When I save, close and open the image is a white block. Tried device independent bitmap, autocad entities and image entity but nothing works. Paste is ticked and not paste link. Think I'm doing everything right.
I want to link an excel sheet with a drawing, so changing the excel changes the drawing. I used this awesome site to learn about going to Edit->Paste Special->Paste Link->AutoCAD Entities...but I don't have that choice. Just the one that makes the OLE image. While that will work, that is less than ideal. Know any reason that wouldn't appear? It appears in just normal paste, but not under paste link. AutoCAD 2007, A.54; Excel 2003 SP3; Windows XP SP3.
