We use CGM files for graphics in Word 2010. Sometimes we crop or resize our graphics. Lately, we have noticed that the cropping is removed and files go back to their original size.

We are trying to figure out if this is a problem with Word 2010, DOCX file format, or our template. Has anyone else had problems with CGM graphics in Word 2010? Does anyone else use CGMs?
