This is a big issue for me, causing many days of angst. I finally stumbled on the following solution. I create a device save an image with postscript(). I then open it in Adobe Acrobat, select the area I want, enlarge to at least 400%, then copy, then paste into PowerPoint or Word. Alternatively, you can simply save a graphics image through the gui and it saves it as pdf. Then go through the steps of selecting, enlarging and copying in Acrobat. I am guessing real graphics programs would work as well (Photoshop or Illustrator), but I don't have those.
