 copy and paste from autocad to Word

Hello,I used autocad and switch to zwcad lately.

I have been reading several posts about copy and paste from autocad to Word, how to do it in zwcad?

I have tried copying/pasting into word from ZWCAD and the quality is not good, very distorted.

I have also tried WMFOUT and didn't like the quality either when pasting into Word.

My best option has been to plot and save as a .jpg, and the quality is great except the black lines turn grey and I really need it to be black. Is there a way to make it look black?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

When using WMFOUT, it is the same as taking a screen grab. So zoom your drawing until what you want to paste into Word, fills the screen. Then when asked to select objects, type ALL. Only what is on the screen will be exported.
When you import into WORD, do not zoom any further, otherwise you will get poor quality. I usually "Ungroup" the image and apply a lineweight of 3/4 pt, and all the lines are crisp
