Justin,
Is it not possible to convert those Visio BMPs into GIFs or JPEGs before
inserting into Frame?

When interviewing for my current job, I was asked to bring a writing
sample,
not necessarily a portfolio, but sometimes similar.

Unfortunately, all the work I had done in the past was classified beyond
what the interviewing facility was cleared. I explained that I could
not
bring a sample, but I did explain the types of manuals that I created.
I'm
sitting here now, so that must have been a somewhat acceptable answer.

Your situation is a smidge difference, because "I don't believe you
would be
breaking the law" (?) but you would be violating company policies, and
perhaps contradicting your own moral values.

I say explain it to them, and they will probably understand. If they
don't
understand, I wouldn't want to work for them, and might ask to take some
of
their proprietary stuff with me so I can stop by their rival on the way
home...see how they feel about that.

Ok, so maybe not that last part...but I have a hunch they will
understand.
