Subject: Re: Word 2007 - FrameMaker compatibility
...and, as suggested in another mail: you should try some other formats
as .CGM if the results are not ok with that. And note: RTF is no graphic
format, also there conversions are done. Maybe the converting routines of
Framemaker are different and prefer other formats.
If you bring the graphs in as links, also with that you might get
different (better?) results with PNG, GIF, ...
It's simple to try it out (not for me, because I don't have Framemaker).
