I am in charge of the site drawings in a shipyard. Due to the yard being in
change most of the time the drawings are all xreffed to
a master plan and are drawn in paperspace with the drawing sheet and some
details in paperspace and the drawing subjects and the
site plan xref in modelspace.
I often get requests for drawings in a graphic file form - I usually use .wmf
inserted into a word doc.
However when I generate the .wmf file I can only get either the paperspace
objects or the modelspace objects to show.
I have been using the work around method of converting the drawing to all
modelspace by cutting & pasting all the paperspace
objects at scale to modelspace but this is a pain in the butt because it
requires a new drawing file to be created. (and of course a
white background to be configured in autoCAD)
Is there some trick to be able to get both paper and modelspace objects to
display in the exported file?
