Need some help.
I'm using Open Office (external of TurboCAD), and have created a "Text Document" (Open Office's equivalent to MS Word) that simply has one table in it that is 7.5"Wide-by-6"Tall.
In Open Office, I formatted the Page such that there are 0" margins, page-size=7.5"x6". I even went into the Printer Settings and created a custom paper size in my PDF-program that is also that size.
Issue: When I insert that OLE Object into TurboCAD, it's size is something like 11"square, with the 7.5"x6" Table being the correct size, but just a bunch of extraneous space, as if it is trying to insert a whole 11"square sheet or something.
Anything that I am doing wrong? Am I limited in using an O.O. Text (or Word) document? Can it be "cropped" in TurboCAD?, or re-sized such that its boundaries only encompass the table?
By the way, after "cropping", I will likely also want to scale it a bit to fit in the allotted space in a Paperspace sheet.
I believe that I could do this successfully using spreadsheet documents in the past. In those cases, only the portion of the document that actually had something written in it "pasted" into TurboCAD; and I could scale (re-size).
Thanks for any help all-- Alvin
