Patrick,

Here is one additional option for you.

I happened to be doing some searching on the OO.org site today for some printing related issues in their Bugzilla equivalent.

There was a reference to a MS Office PDF import filter available from ScanSoft that would enable you to create PDF vector based plot files in R (using pdf()) and then import them into MS Office.

There is a RFE in the OO.org issues list for this feature, which won't appear before OO.org V2.0. If and when this becomes available it would streamline some of the Linux -> Windows issues that have been discussed in this thread.

More information on PDFConverter is available from the ScanSoft site at:

http://www.scansoft.com/pdfconverter/standard/

There is a standard version available for $49 (U.S) and a professional version available for $99 (U.S.). Some example PDF -> Word documents are available at http://www.scansoft.com/pdfconverter/demo/.

HTH, Marc Schwartz
