I am very new to AutoCAD and am wondering how to fix my title block. I use Inventor 2013 regularly and only sometimes require the use of AutoCAD, mainly for 2D electrical layout drawings.
I have saved my drawing .idw template file from Inventor to a .dwg
Inserted it into AutoCAD .dwg
Saved as an AutoCAD .dwt
now the only issue that I have, is the image that I had embedded into the inventor drawing template, shows up as an icon instead of my compnay logo:
Is AutoCAD capable of showing images in a title block and hwo would I go about deleting the current icon image and replace it with the logo?
I tried deleting the current image in block editor but it won't let me select it.

So I edited my inventor drawing template, exported as a dwg, imported into AutoCAD as a .dwt and ended up with this:
I got rid of the icon logo issue, but now I just need to insert my compnay logo, any help would be appreicated.
You may be able to open your logo file in photo editing application and perform a copy and paste into Autocad resulting in an OLE object. Does that work for you?
While OLE is a possible option, there are other issues with OLE, and final output quality generally leaves much to be desired.
Best advice iI can offer is to recreate your company logo with native AutoCAD entities. That will give you the most flexibility and highest quality. Since it's the company logo you're talking about, a brand identity that your customers see - you don't really want them to associate that with blurry, low quality images. Sends a poorer message than I would want to communicate.
This will work, I created a simple logo awhile back, and it looks fine, copy and paste worked from MS Paint.
Thanks for the heads up in regards to the OLE issues that may be ahead, for now though becasue of time constraints, I will use an image, and will look into logo re-creation in AutoCAD.
