My ultimate goal is to create a
      document with Writer that I can "Export as PDF".The examples
      that I originally sent were trivial, but the important ones arevector
        drawingsand theymust stay vector drawingsso that
      when the final document in resized in Adobe Reader the will come
      out correct.Look at Example 3, attached.The object in Draw is slightly smaller than the 
page/canvas.While in Writer, when I "Insert -Object -OLE Object -Create from
      file" the resultant OLE is larger than either of those 2 sizes !!Luckily these are all close 
so I can live with it ... this time !There must be a way, in Writer, to insert an OLE so that the
      resultant OLE has a predictable size !On 10/29/2013 11:29 AM, Tom Davies wrote:
Hi :)
I don't know what is going wrong there.
The way i get images into a document is to simply drag
                them in.It sounds like you are trying to do something
                over-complicated but there is probably a good reason for
                it.My way means the document ends up being quite
                heavy.So i open the document and then open the folder with the
                images in.Then simply click and drag the image from
                the folder into the document.
i never expect images to appear the right size to start
              with.In the rare cases where i have control over the
              physical size of the image on-screen i try to make it
              about twice the size that it's going to appear when
              printed in order to try to make it sharp enough but not
              tooo heavy.
I tend to prefer resizing by right-click on the image and
            then select "Picture" to open a dialogue-box with tons of
            options for anchor-point, wrap, borders, spacing and all the
            rest so that i can have a first stab at doing all of that in
            one go.That way of resizing means i can keep the aspect
            ratio to avoid distorting the images.Most people are
            familiar with the output of Word so they don't mind if
            images and logos do get distorted but i prefer to be more

   am trying to insert an ODG into a ODT usingInsert
            -Object -OLE Object -Create from fileThe resultant "physical
            size" on the page (paper) of the object inthe ODT is NOT the same as the original ODG ! 
Of course
            grabbing aresize handle in Writer "stretches" the contents out of
            shape.If the resultant object is selected (green dots
            on),Format -ObjecthasPosition and Sizedisabled.Example 1,
            the ODG is 1 page which is defined as 6.0"x2.0" with0,0,0,0 margins. When it is 
inserted it is clearly much
            taller than2.0".Example 2, the ODG is 1 page, A4 size with A4
            default margins. WhenI try to insert it into my ODT it fills the width of the
            Letter sizepage, but the length is much too small.In both cases,
            when the image is brought into the Writer document,the contents of the image have the 
proper width/height
            ratio.--To unsubscribe e-mail
