I need to take a section of a drawing and make it a .jpg or related format so I may use it in Microsoft word. I am in Land Development 2i and have tried to figure it out. I have gotten it to work, but the image is fuzzy and hardly readable or not very sharp. Any advice?

Plot drawing as a pdf file then open the pdf in coreldraw and re-export as an wmf (windows meta file) which is a vector format and is great for word.

BTW you can adjust the resolution of the JPEGS and tiffs that Autocad creates.

Jennifer:

Print a hard copy of your drawing on paper. Then photograph your drawing with a digital camera. The resulting photo will be a .jpg file.

Edit
On Autocad there is an export aplication, not very sharp.

another way to go is to fit the best you can to the screen what you want to copy, then press the "print Scrn" button, then paste it in paint brush as BMP, then save as to JPG.

Hope it works for you
