I am unclear if you want to embed a document as Doug explained, or hyperlink to a document from a draing entity? If the latter, you can add a hyperlink by:
- Select an entity
- Type PROPERTIES at the command line
- Browse to the file by clicking the browse button in the Hyperlink field of the properties dialog
Once yo have added a hyperlink, your cursor will change to include a small world-globe in the crosshairs when you hover over the entity that has the hyperlink. To open the hyperlink, hold down the CTRL key as you click on the entity.
