When you paste pie/bar graphs from Excel into AutoCAD, they can exhibit all the problems of a typical OLE insert, including plot rotation, etc.  Use this procedure to ‘shake off’ the OLE.

  1. In Excel, copy your graph to the clipboard.
  2. In AutoCAD, issue the PASTESPEC command, choose Excel Chart, your only choice at this point.
  3. In AutoCAD, right click on the chart and choose CUT.
  4. In AutoCAD, issue the PASTESPEC command again, choose AutoCAD entities.
  5. Erase the outer border and background solid to reveal a good looking collection of native geometry.
