Default embed autocad drawing in word document prints very light

When I insert (edit/paste special) an Autocad 2007 drawing into an MS Word 2007 document, the lines print too light. I want to be able to modify the embedded autocad drawing later. I've tried many adjustments to the print set-up with no success. How can I get the lines to print darker in Word?


Thanks.

Hi gbehm,

Other than playing around with Word's brightness & contrast settings (you should be able to access these via the 'Picture Tools' tab), the only option would be to modify the drawing in Autocad before inserting it into Word.
