OLE spreadsheet plotting black

722 Views, 1 Replies

I am using AutoCAD Map 3D 2011 and I am plotting a map with transparent polygon features as well as an Excel spreadsheet inserted as an OLE object. When I plot with transparency turned off (in the _plot dialogue box) the spreadsheet is white but the features are solid. When I plot with transparency turned on, the features look great, but the spreadsheet has a black background with white text.

 

Any idea how to get the spreadsheet to keep a white background while plotting transparency is turned on? I have tried changing the background of the spreadsheet to 254, 254, 254 with no change in the results.

 

thanks-

I think I may have found the solution. I had to change the object type in the properties of the OLE object from "monochrome (spreadsheet)" to " high graphics (photo)."

CAD can be so obtuse sometimes...
