Embedding Xcelsius Dashboard in Word or pdf page .... Is it possible??

How can I embed xcelsius dashboard in a word or pdf page ? While exporting I get a full page of pdf or word. I have seen some documents on the web where the dashboard is embedded among the text in pdf page as an example.

Is it possible with excelsius 2008??

I know it was not possible with 4.5 pro.

There is no mention on user guides or website about this issue while to me it seems it is a primary issue on how to use dashboard embedded in a page. Having afull page wasted for every dashboard seems strange to me. I hope there is a way.

Please let me know.

      Hi Amy

      I did have a limited success in changing the size of the dashboard. However I was not able to move around the dashboard or crop the unused part. I was using 4.5 professional. Do you think engage/present will have a better interface?

      Same issue remains with pdf also. It really limits the application if everytime you have a dashboard you need to dedicate a full page. Some simple dashboards could be accomodated in half or less part of the page and I hope some one at Xcelsius is looking into it.

      I tried to find any competitive product to Xcelsius but was not succesful to find interactive dashboard based on excel sheet. Are there any?
