Edit OLE object - how to rotate?

2250 Views, 7 Replies

Is there a way that i can rotate an OLE object on the drawing? (paper space or model space). I've tried different ways to rotate an OLE object (OLE object chart from MSExcel but not rotating). I've used the MVsetup command to change the view angle of viewport with an OLE in the model space but the OLE object stay on the same angle but other objects within the same viewport rotated. on the properties tool bar, there is no option for rotation.

Your help will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

Not an option.
Rotate outside AutoCAD then re-attach.

Thanks for the reply Dean.

Is there a chance for autodesk to enhance the OLE properties and add this rotating option? anyone from autodesk?

I don't want to screw the data on graph that comes from client and it will take a while to rotate it from the MSexcel since sometimes there are more than two data to rearrange.

I'm running 2013 and it still cannot be done.  I vote for a service pack fix.

I would use a crayon before I would use OLE.

Terry, Thanks for the really useful help.  This forum is for helping people, not bashing them.  How do you even know what we're up to?  If you're pushing your add-on maybe you should make a nice sales pitch instead of just making people feel like idiots.

I'm not bashing anybody, unless you are a Microsoft employee in charge of Windows OLE you have no reason to be offended.   Also note my reply was to the original poster (who adequatedly explained what they are up to), not you.
