Hello,

I'm having trouble getting clear emf and wmf vectors into powerpoint2000

SP-3(9.0.6620) that I created within Illustrator 8.0 or CorelDraw 11. They

also print out ugly as well. Also, when I try to import an eps, Powerpoint

does not recognize the format and asks me to convert file, I then choose

encapsolated postscript, then error window popups up.

Thanks

jl

      WMFs don't do well with curves. EMFs can be better but with older versions of

      software, frequently aren't. Result: clunky looking graphics made of zillions

      of straight-line segments instead of the original bezier curves.

      Sometimes your best bet for these things is to export a PNG and bring that into

      PPT.

      How did you make the EPS? If they're properly made, PPT can generally import

      them ok. It's what it does with them after that that makes you want to give up

      on graphics and just go fishing for a year or ten.

      I'd give PPT + EPS a wide berth.
