Inserting a Vector Graphic into PowerPoint and Ungrouping Shapes
Maptitude allows you to save a map as an Enhanced Metafile (*.EMF). An Enhanced Metafile is a graphics file format that contains vector graphics and prevents any image fuzziness.
Another benefit of saving a map as an EMF is that the image can be ungrouped in applications such as Microsoft Office. The following steps walk you through this task:
1. Choose File-New, choose Map, then choose General Purpose Map and follow the prompts to map your area of interest.
2. Choose File-Save As, or click the right mouse button on the map window and choose Save As. Maptitude displays the Save As dialog box.
3. Choose Enhanced Metafile from the Files of Type drop-down list, type a new name for the file, and click Save.
4. Once you have inserted your EMF into an Office Document such as a PowerPoint slide, you can follow the steps in the following link to ungroup your vector map features:
