Table coming in mirrored?

168 Views, 6 Replies

Hi, We use a table with an inserted jpeg image (company logo) as our title block. Everything works fine when you start a new drawing, however, when one tries to insert the template into an existing drawing or thru a new layout, the table that is our title block comes in mirrored with the rows and columns all out of whack. Any ideas as to why this is?

 

Thanks.

"...when one tries to insert the template into an existing drawing or thru a new layout..."

Perhaps there is an existing (competing) block definition already in the existing drawing. (?)

It's a table, it only does it on older (pre-table) dwg's....I think that might be the problem?

The program, not the version/age of the file, controls the table AFAIK.

Then I'm not sure why....its only happening when I try and insert the template into older prints.

can you verify that there is not an already existing block of the same name in the file?
