Our draftspeople have always given us PLT-format files, which we imported to
Ventura and Word 6. But Word 97 does not provides a PLT filter.

After much trial and error, our marketing secretary decided her only
solution was to load PLT files into a Word 6 document, and then convert the
document to Word 97. That does in fact work for the technical writers in
R&D, but the pages with these drawings display ever so slowly, and are next
to impossible to manipulate (picture edit/add callouts) - even on a PC with
masses of memory.

Should I try using Corel 8 filters for converting the PLT files to another
vector format, such as EMF/WMF? DXF files exported from AutoCAD format are
no good.

I'd appreciate hearing suggestions and solutions to this problem.
