    Dxf changing T-Block

    robert dattilo



          I have a file that has used a bitmap in the title block for the companies logo. I exported 7 files as dxf's & then tested them in draftsite.

      The bitmap logo, doesn't show up as a logo, but more like a link, so that if you double click on it, you be taken to a full page of the logo.

      Of course this isn't what we want. We simple want the drawing to show everything, including the logo as part of the title block. What would be

      the best way to fix this issue. I was hoping for a quick solution, so that I could get these files off to the customer as I started to do. Also I might

      need to look into the templates that contained these logos to start with. The SolidWorks drawings appear fine. This only happened when I exported it as a dxf, &

      then tried to open it in draftsite.


      Thanks, in advance for any input;

          In Draftsight, Insert the logo as a raster image


          Place the raster image in the drawing the same way you would a block.  Draftsight (as well as AutoCAD) links to the image, so make sure it's stored in a location that's easily accesses and that you include it in transmittal sets.  Also, make sure you set the IMAGEFRAME variable to No or On but no print if you don't want a border around the logo.
