inserting picture to word

Postby anatomik3001 » Thu Jan 12, 2017 1:58 am

i'm a new user of inkscape. i just need it for the pictures i need to draw for my thesis in maths. my problem is that when insert a picture (saved as emf) in word, the straight lines do not look so straight, but like they're drawn with a trembling hand. (i was using Shift- F6 to draw straight lines.) how do i fix that?

Can you share some example files... the svg and resulting emf?
Have a nice day.

I'm using 0.92 64 bit win8.1


The tutorials in the Inkscape Help menu are fun and the best place to start.

Most other answers are in the Inkscape Manual! :-)

i can't upload the emf file but it looks exactly the same. in word it looks bad and i can't upload a word file here, as i can see.

It looks like the paths might have become rasterized, so that they aren't paths anymore. But when I convert your SVG to EMF, and open the EMF, the lines are still paths.

I think the problem is that even though they are vector paths, they still have to be displayed on the computer screen, using pixels. But you can check and make sure anti-aliasing is being used. Document Properties > Page tab, at the bottom, make sure there's a checkmark in the box.

If it's already checked, you might be able to improve it somewhat, if you can make the paths wider. Or maybe add just a tiny, tiny amount of blur (like 0.2 or 0.3).

I don't think there is any satisfying solution to this problem. Although other members might know more than I do about it.

The file and the EMF I make from it look fine in everything I import the EMF into, so it might just be a MSWord thing. (I don't have Word, so I can't say precisely.)

I'd try WMF, or maybe better, download LibreOffice and use that instead of Word.
