Hi,

Could someone tell me what's the best format that matplotlib can
produce for insertion to MS word? I'm working on a paper using MS
word. I used matplotlib to produce the pictures in "png' format, but
my professor doesn't satisfy with the quality of the pictures, he asks
me to do it in "emf" format, but I can't get an "emf" output from
matplotlib. While other vector formats that are supported by
matplotlib are not supported by MS word. I have worked days on
producing this pictures, I don't want to abandon them just because
they can't be imported to MS word. I really like to produce my
pictures by using matplotlib, but I can't really throw away MS word. I
also tried pstoedit to try to convert to emf from the ps, but it
doesn't work on my system due to some weired missing procedure entry
points in imagick dll.

I'm kinda in a hurry, any help would be greatly appreciated.

A quick google search indicates that OpenOffice can read EPS files
(postscript) and convert to emf.

I'm afraid that for EPS you will not do better
by moving to a MS product. At least my luck
has been bad. Otoh, I have had pretty good
luck with PNG.

Yes, with large pictures, PNG is good enough, but when scaling down,
it looks a bit fuzzy.
