Any planting schedules we do are created as a table in Word and inserted (& linked) as an OLE Object into Progecad 2010.

When printing the OLE Object frame is shown as a dashed line. Is there an option to have no frame in a similar fashion to 'Images'?

Hello Ronnie Gilchrist,

A couple of tests were carried out. progeCAD prints OLE (Object Linking and Embedding) objects as expected, I am wondering if the problem has to do with the way your data table is being drawn in Microsoft Word. Here is an example table from Microsoft Word embedded in progeCAD:


And here is the result we get when we print this drawing to PDF from progeCAD:


Nothing dashed. Note you can change the appearance of the border surrounding an OLE embedded object in progeCAD by clicking along its border (when not in OLE edit mode) and changing it in the properties palette.

Maybe you can list the exact steps you use to embed your objects, we can check it again..
