    Hi Kathrina,

    no, WWI only supports BMP and PNG as far as I know.

    Cheers,

    Hi Kathrina,

    WWI natively supports only BMP and PNG.
    All other graphic formats are inserted by Word. So everything what works in Word, works with WWI (but slower then BMP and PNG through WWI).

    Hi Kathrina,

    WMF stands for Windows Metafile Format. Metafile means that this file contains information that describes or specifies another file. WMF was introduced by Microsoft.

    WMF saves space already-built comparing with bitmaps especially when many bitmaps are used repeatedly by different components of the operating system or of an application. The WMF file was created for a 16-bit operating system. For 32-bit operating systems Microsoft developed an enhanced metafile format (EMF). Microsoft's clipboard (CLP) file may contain an EMF file, a WMF file, or a bitmap format file (BMP).
