WMF/EMF copy or export to file (by Rune)
For documentation purpose, it would be desirable to be able to copy paste directly from SS to e.g. a Word application. At the moment one can export as PDF (or SVG) and do some conversion but its rather awkward.
Any thoughts on how to implement this?

Happy new-year everyone

Have you tried EPS? You can't cut and paste, but Insert -> Picture should work in Word (or other Office apps), no conversion required.

The EPS does not have preview data and will only tender on PostScript printers. Therefore its a suboptimal solution. I've started to see if I can implement the EMF copy to clipboard

What version of Office are you using? It should preview on-screen and print on any printer with any modern version.

I 'upgraded' Office 2007 to word2000 ;-)
Anyway, copy paste is much faster than save +import.
Im looking into how to implement a EMF copy to clipbord using the SvgFileWriter as a model.
I've started studying:

But ran into problems mixing MFC with the SolveSpace project.
What do you think?

EMF copy implemented, but without colors. Let me know if someone is interested.
