My limited experience with EMF has been disappointing. I haven't found an
export filter that handles it well. YYMV.

I've had good success in exporting line drawings as PNGs from CorelDRAW.
However, CorelDRAW isn't the package in question. It's Visio.

For what I've seen and experienced, exporting in any format from Visio
should be approached with caution. Until its export filters improve, I
suggest importing graphic objects in the native Visio format if you can.
That's saying a whole lot, considering that I dislike importing such objects
into my documents and I routinely invent tricks to put graphics into more
conventional and portable formats.

[Note that I'm using Visio 2000.]
