Wayne, thanks for clarifying. I didn't really doubt you because you sounded so authoritative in your post but I certainly couldn't figure out how to do it. The problem with the cut-paste operation for schematics, someone was just at my desk and we were talking about it, you can't rotate the pasted schematic in WORD. You are stuck with the landscape schematic in a portrait page within Word. Unless you change the section formatting in WORD to do the one page as landscape. Some people bitch a bit about this solution because then all of their header and footer information gets changed to the sides of the page as well.

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 Trow PCB Design Technician Gallagher Group LTD Hamilton NEW ZEALAND [p] +64 7 838 9800 ext 8737 [f] +64 7 838 9801 [e] [EMAIL PROTECTED] * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * To post a message: mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] * * To leave this list visit: * http://www.techservinc.com/protelusers/leave.html * * Contact the list manager: * mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] * * Forum Guidelines Rules: * http://www.techservinc.com/protelusers/forumrules.html * * Browse or Search previous postings: * http://email@example.com * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
