Dotted-Lines and Microsoft PowerPoint 2003


When inserting an object into Microsoft PowerPoint 2003, the object is converted from an enhanced meta file (EMF) to a windows meta file (WMF). This conversion can cause rendering problems for details such as dotted lines. To display dotted lines in charts embedded in Microsoft PowerPoint 2003 follow the instructions outlined below.


  • Click the File tab and select Options. The Options dialog displays.
  • Check the Use fixed line widths for embedded objects option.
  • Click OK.

OrgPlus now uses a fixed 1pt line width for all embedded charts. Using this fixed line width correctly displays dotted-lines while maintaining a consistent line width across all embedded charts.
