You should be able to select the graphic in Word and copy it to the clipboard. Then paste it into a graphics tool, i.e., Photoshop. Then you can save it as whatever format you prefer and import this, by reference, into Frame.

(Win 2K) 1. Only the embedded Word graphics exist. 2. All graphics in the FrameMaker document must be imported by reference. My solution was to copy each Word graphic into an FM document, save it as a .fm file, and import the .fm file by reference into the FM document. This has seemed to be a workable solution, and I've used it to convert three manuals.of 100 pp. each. I've created PDF files for two of the manuals (containing books with several chapters), but the PDF fails in the case of the third manual In this case, the problem seems to be with the graphic: each page after the page containing the graphic shows a block of text the same size and in the same position as the graphic on the page before. This is probably a "primitive" solution for getting the graphics into the FM documents. I'll be grateful for any suggestions for doing this a better way.
