I am writing both paper and help files in a single source environment
(Word 7, D2H 2.0, NT 4.0).

I embed screen captures (bmp or wmf) as linked images (manual only) and
as {bmc} fields (help only). I do not let D2H convert my graphics.

The problem is, if I make the graphic the correct size for the manual,
it is far too large for the help file, or, if I make it the right size
for the help file it is far too small for the manual. The ratio is
approximately 3 to 1 (or maybe 96 pixels/inch to 300 dots/inch, even
though our printers are 600 dpi or more).

I don't remember having this problem when I was using Word 2, D2H 1.6,
and Win 3.1.

Can anyone shed some light on this?
