Hi Jeremy,

We are converting some word docs to FM.  The graphics files are embedded in
word and we have no idea what the original tool was to create the graphics.
When we import the word doc into FM, the MS2007 filter in FM does a good
job.  It creates frames and places the same embedded graphics in the frames.
Does FM know at this point what the original graphics file format is and
will Mif2Go extract the graphics to the original file format?  Or am I
wishing for too much.

Thanks lots,

You can always get embedded graphics out of Frame and into
files of their *original* type with Mif2Go; the free demo
version will do that for you:

Detailed instructions are in the User's Guide, par. 29.2.3,
"Exporting and converting embedded graphics".  The graphics
will not have their original names, because Frame discarded
those on import.  (Word does better; it keeps them. ;-)
But they *will* be in the original format, most likely EPS
in your case, and the process is very fast and automatic;
you can do a full book at once.
