Good afternoon- I've created a word processing file, and would like to import it *with formatting* into AutoCAD LT 2014. Is this possible? The file is in outline format (it's a spec, and has a bunch of numbers and tabs)...but the tabs don't come in when I insert this text - it's all lined up, left justified. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your help.
COPY/PASTE between both open programs, after you select everything from the source file, would get you a snapshot. Double-click on that snapshot and your original document should open (linked): at least that's how Microfost Office products act. OR COPY then PASTESPEC command in AutoCAD/LT would get you more options to choose from. OR INSERTOBJ command can be used for the longer process of attaching and linking to a file. OR COPY/PASTE from the source file into an open MEXT WIndow, no link, but you get the formatting.
Note that with OLE linking, there is a size limit of around a single printed sheet.
Start experimenting: all the above work with more "office" applications but I don't have direct experience with OpenOffice to confirm.
