| SORRY !!!
|
| I've led you astray.
|
| The metafiles are only for PCB - stupid me !!
|
| If you want a "softcopy" of a schematic by putting it in a program such as
| Word you can just use copy/cut/paste commands.
|
| There is also an add-on called klipper - distibuted by desktop-eda
| (www.desktop-eda.com.au) - which allows:
|
| -PCB and PCB Library Editor:
| -    Copy and paste to and from the Windows clipboard
| -    Place bitmaps and Window Metafiles into you PCB or PCB library
| documents
| -
| -Schematic and Schematic Library Editor:
| -    Paste from the Windows Clipboard
| -    An alternative to the Protel Place Graphic command that stores the
| image in your document
| -    Place the objects on the Windows clipboard as a graphic image (which
| you can re-size)
| -    Place Text on the Windows Clipboard as text in your schematic
| -
| <copied from the klipper help file>
|
| Sorry for the mis-direction

| Wayne,
|            where is this metafile output for schematics? I certainly can't
| find
| it, is it something that is based on one of your printer drivers? I found
| the metafile output for PCB prints but can't find hide nor hair of anything
| similar in schematics. Even searched through the Protel help (as if I
| expected that to actually work) and the only references that it came up
| with
| was importing or exporting from PCB previews.
|
| Sincerely,
| Brad Velander.

| |
| | For the schematic viewing you could use the metafile output capability of
| | the schematic editor. Metafiles can be open by such programs as Word,
| etc.
| |
| | Gerber viewers are probably the best way to view pcbs because, as
| mentioned
| | in other posts, there are no programs that will read a Protel PCB file.
| | Graphicode have a gerber viewer that is free - GC-Preview - go to
| | www.graphicode.com.
| |
| | Hope this helps
