    mbedded Visio file prints small (WORD 2000 SR1)

    I have an EU who has a linked Vision file in a WORD doc. When they preview it, it looks fine, but when they print it, the diagram prints small.

    She emailed the file to me. Here is what I did to test:

    1. I dbl-clicked on the diagram and it opened up Visio.
    2. I selected all and copied the diagram into a new Vision file and saved.
    3. I then deleted the old link from WORD and did a File-Instert--Object.
    4. I pointed to the Visio file and it placed the diagram on to a page.
    5. I then went to the properties and set the size to 90% constrained.
    +++ When I printed it, it printed fine.

    Back to the EU.

    The did the same thing but it did not work.
    The said when the Cut&Paste the diagram, it print s fine, but when the embed, the fonts shrink.

    What is the correct way to embed a one page diagram into a word file? What setting should I look for, etc?

    Thanks

    Do the fonts shrink in order to allow more of the Visio drawing to fit, or do they just get smaller while showing the same area of the drawing?

    Comparing the page setups between your computer and your end user, in both Visio and Word, do either of you have any kind of scaling/print to fit options selected?

    It's been a long time since I worked with visio inserts, but I had a similar problem. I seem to recall that saving the visio file in emf format solved my problem. Perhaps that will work with you.

    Thanks Chuck. That worked but made the file static. Therefore if the Visio file was updated, the ord file will not see the changes. The EU will just have to keep embedding the file instead of linking it.
