Image viewer in ACAD 2002
« on: January 05, 2004, 05:06:20 PM »
G'day everyone,

There's a new guy here who was telling me about an image viewer in AutoCAD 2002 that lets you pick an image in a drawing file and see a full screen view of it. Does anyone know about this as we often use images in drawings.

Thanks

John

Never heard of it.

Perhaps it's part of CAD Overlay?

If the image is inserted as an OLE object, it will open the dedicated app when double-clicking on it. Is that the case here?

You learn something new every day! I use Excel OLE objects all the time, it never accured to me to use an image. Excellent Mr. Madsen, thanks.

So that's what we were talking about?

I stay away
from OLE
What can I say
I like it that way
