Copy paste into openoffice writer document

Post by arhuhov » Sat Oct 20, 2018 11:33 am

I hope someone has the answer on my following question.

Ik would like to paste selected entities from a drawing into a table in an Openoffice Writer textdocument.
Copy Paste by using ctrl"C" in Qcad and Ctrl"V" in Openoffice doesn't work.
I used to work with an old Quickcad application in which this copy-paste into open office simply did work!

OS: windows 10 HOME version 1803
Qcad Professional version
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2

I don't think that a Openoffice Writer document supports a dxf/dwg format from what ever source - but that is just a wild guess.
I would use screenshots of the QCAD drawing in a png, jpg etc format.

Good luck!

If you want to insert vector data into an OpenOffice document, I'd recommend to use the SVG format:
- Export your file to SVG in QCAD (File > Advanced SVG Export... or File > Quick SVG Export...)
- Insert the SVG into OpenOffice using Insert > Picture > From File...
