The last time I had to place Visio drawings in FrameMaker I had some problem with PDF (which worked fine with Excel) so I used EMF, but today I'd use SVG. On Thu, Sep 20, 2018 at 9:07 PM, Carrie Baker wrote: > A further question. > > What is the best practice for importing Visio to Frame

It got better. Sometime around Visio 2013, I think, they fixed most of the export issues from Visio to SVG, at least. Now, if you're pasting SVGs created by Visio that have images manipulated in Photoshop to have a white background, you're going to run into problems. ;-) But regular Visio

I've watched this thread with interest. My experience is old, so Visio may have improved, but back in the day we used to have no end of problems with non-Visio-native exports from Visio for use in FrameMaker. I vividly remember 'connected' objects that weren't, and 'arcs' and 'circles' that

2000 OLE objects would certainly be asking for trouble. It's probably possible to write a VBScript that would go through all the Visio files in a directory, resize them to fit the drawing, and export to SVG or some other format FrameMaker can handle. On Thu, Sep 20, 2018 at 6:35 AM, wrote: >

I thought embedding was importing by copy, not reference? Although I grant you, I assumed this was a Windows platform given she is talking about Visio. BTW, Julie, if this IS Windows and Visio, remember to shrink the Visio canvas down around the drawing, or, depending on the size of the drawing,

That's embedding an OLE object. Might be appropriate or not depending on many factors. On Wed, Sep 19, 2018 at 9:27 AM, Lin Sims wrote: > Yes. > >1. File > Import > Object, select Microsoft Visio Drawing from the list >2. Select Create from File >3. Select Link >4. Click OK. > >
