There are two ways that you'll handle such a situation:
First, set your background color to write. Set all layers colors to be black. (Unless you favor a colored copy) Use 'Zoom' 'Window' to induce specifically what you would like to repeat. Use 'Copy' (I additionally wish to Copy with Base point). Choose everything you would like to repeat. Open Microsoft Word or stand out and hit 'Ctrl+V' and therefore, the image is currently traced into Word or stand out. Once you are done repeating, merely return to AutoCAD and hit 'Undo' until it's back to traditional, or just shut while not saving. You'll double-click on the image you only traced, And it'll open up an instance of AutoCAD for writing if you prefer. (Be careful to save lots of back to Word or stand out before you close up AutoCAD otherwise you would possibly get some strange results).
 
Secondly, ""Print the DWG layout to PDF. Copy the specified data within the PDF to the writing board Paste the DWG/PDF data from the writing board to Word.
 
""That's it during a shell; however, here it's once more in larger detail: Open the specified drawing in AN AutoCAD-based product, v2008 or later. Print the layout containing the specified data to PDF mistreatment the ""DWG to PDF.pc3"" setup file (consider making a custom variant to induce your line types right). Open the ensuing PDF enter Adobe Reader. Use the short tool to pick the specified space Zoom the read to be four-hundredth (experiment to the extent of magnification; three hundredth could offer you ample image quality and scale back the dimensions of your finished document).Right-click within the elects space and duplicates the chosen graphic to the writing board. Paste the chosen graphic into Word and use grips to size the graphics window.
