When paste special a bitmap image from Excel 2010 into AutoCAD 2012 and then try to zoom in on it the text size changes. It gets smaller and smaller as you zoom in, then suddenly get big again. When I zoom back out to where the text looks normal and print. It print very small. Anyone have any suggestions as to why it is doing this.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I can't reproduce it, see my test file attached.
I selected the cells in Excel, copied, then pasted Special using the options Paste - Microsoft Excel Worksheet.
Can you send your file and steps to reproduce?

I have attached the Excel test.dwg that you had sent me with my excel sheet pasted in. I have also attached my excel spread sheet. All I do is select the cells I want in excel, copy them, then paste special as a Bitmap in AutoCAD. I have also tried paste special as Microsoft Excel Worksheet, Picture (Metafile), and Picture (Enhanced Metafile). The one I pasted in the attached Excel test.dwg as pasted as a Microsoft Excel Worksheet. As you can see when you zoom in the text size changes. When you print the text is very small.
We thought it might be our printer or printer driver. We did try a different driver, but still prints small. We are printing to a Savin 9050 using a PCL 6 driver. We also tried using the PCL 5e driver, but with same results.
The font size of the text in the spreadsheet is 6 and 4.
If I change it to 8 or larger the issue seems to be resolved.
Is this a valid workaround for you?
