Any tips or tricks when inserting excel tables in DCAD?
There is not much in the reference manual.

I have found that a mono-spaced font eg "courrier new" in windows is required.
It seems that all worksheets are imported..can this be controlled?
How are column widths controlled? I have some columns that are twice the width of the inserted text!
Word wrap does not seem to be retained?

One way that this could be accomplished is to use a pdf writer/editor to make a jpg of the spreadsheet. After the image is created, it can be inserted into Datacad. As you update the spreadsheet, just update/replace the image. I have found that importing spreadsheets causes cell formatting to change.

I hope this is helpful.
