Handling WMF chart (geanerated by MSPowerPoint) into Inkscap

Postby cadu » Mon Jan 09, 2012 6:13 am

O exported a chart from MSPowerPoint in WMF format.
I open and tried edit WMF file into Inkscape.
First thing I did: right-click to context menu and "ungroup".
After that some objects could be manipulated, but other seems to be grouped yet. But "ungroup" option isn't available more.
When I click in objects with "edit paths by nodes" tool, I can see several points, but I can't split then, just make changes in shapes.
I just want erase some bars and construct a temporal series, but some bars are together.
I would appreciate any help with this issue. I attached the chart in SVG format.
Thanks in advance,

Bars of the same colour form a single path. (You can tell it's a single path, rather than a group, by looking at the status line.) Use Break Apart (on the Path menu) to split the path into separate paths for each bar.
