Company logo


New member
I am a entry level user and have a question on adding the company logo to a drawing template.

How do I add a jpg or image file to a drawing as a symbol?
Instructions on how to copy sketched geometry from one drawing (format) to another:

Group the entities together and give it a name. Under SHEETS menu, select “switch sheet”; then pick the entities again and once you have selected done. This will create a second sheet. Export this as a DXF file. Then import it as an appended model to the drawing you are moving to and follow the yellow brick road.
In drawing: Insert>Object

then you are able to select your favorite file in order to insert in drawing.
To insert a jpeg,gif or tiff:

Select: Insert(pull down menu)
