For some time we used AutoCAD 2004, and if you selected
several lines and pressed ctrl-c to copy them, then pasted them
into a solidworks sketch, they would be converted into solidworks
sketch entities. If they sketcher wasn't open, they would be pasted
into a new sketch created automatically. This was very convenient.
Since switching to Vista and AutoCAD 2009, however, the features
get pasted into Solidworks as an AutoCAD OLE object, and are
therefore completely worthless to me. Now, all i can do is either
1) redraw by hand 2) open the entire drawing in solidworks first
and let it convert it, or 3) use DWG Editor, which I don't even
have installed because I have real AutoCAD.
Anybody know how to get the old 2004 functionality back? I wouldn't
exactly call myself an AutoCAD pro so I'm sure there's something
