[Preface: Trying to bring FM into a Word shop.]
What happens to graphics embedded into a
WinWord or RTF file when the file is imported
into FM (V5.5) ?
There are a number of WinWord (V6, mostly) files floating
around that should be ''framed.'' Many of these files are
laden with bitmap images (screen captures, etc.)
The graphics were embedded - vs. linked - so there is zero
opportunity to simply refer them to the FM file. I am NOT
enthusatic about using Paint Shop Pro to grab graphics;
although PSP is an excellent utility, I am concerned the
files will be (further) degraded.
If anyone else is interested in the replies, please send a
''me to'' message with your email address in the BODY to me
at one of the above e-addresses.
