AutoCAD OLE Hide Objects Bug

If you in AutoCAD 2013, AutoCAD 2012 and maybe earlier versions too select isolate and Hide Objects on an OLE object like a pasted image from the clipboard there is a glitch making it possible to unintentionally erase or move the OLE object but it cannot be listed with the LIST command. An irritating thing is also that if you try to click in the area where the hidden OLE object is to create a crossing or window selection it does not work unless you do it explicitly.


  1. You need to set OLEFRAME to 1.

  2. Tried that Owen but it did not solve the problem here.

    I pasted a jpeg file into AutoCad and lost my OLE Dialog Text box.

    How do I get back?


  4. Is it working to run olescale command?
