Quick Q.
[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.

FWIW, such files failed to load into Ventura V7.

Please reply to either
