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.
New nanoCAD Plus 11 is released!
We added dozens of new commands and features and made the user interface even more clear and consistent.
Free trial license is available here: https://nanocad.com/.../plus/download/
