Several years ago I made some WORD documents with DWG-files in it. The whole dwaring was visible. When I clicked on these DWG-image it opened Autocad so I could make changes onto the drawing. Now i don't have Autocad anymore so I searched for a replacement and found NanoCAD.

When I now add a DWG-file into a WORD Document it is only shown as an pictogram and not the whole drawing. Older documents with a DWG-file in it won't open NanoCAD.

Is this a problem with NanoCAD or Microsoft? When I click twice on a DWG-file in WIndows Explorer it opens with NanoCAD.

What do I need to do to make the whole DWG-file visible as an drawing and not as an pictogram in WORD?

that is not problem. That is feature, and we are working on it now. I suppose, it may be ready next year.
So double-click editing from Word is not available.

Now you can only save the drawing as image and paste it to Word. Drawing will be visible, without editing.
