You can easily invert the colors so that the lines are white and the background is your normal AutoCAD background. You are then asked to specify an area of the image that you wish to clean up. Note: I did notice that on a few drawings, it erased some periods and commas in text that was in the image. You are then asked to specify the size of the speckle so that it will look for similar sized speckles and clean them up. You can do this by either picking within a speckle or by making a window selection.
