Hello,
IMHO, for the printer

1 - The best choice of graphics format is postscript ( PS ) in Microsoft ( M$ ), since you install the M$ Convert Pack [1]! Make a preview in PS file with EMF format! use epstool for this

2 - Enhanced MetaFile ( EMF ) in M$ and OpenOffice ( OOo) is not the same... This can be a problem! See pstoedit page [2]

*note: emf can be also to included for preview

HTH,
Cleber N. Borges {klebyn}
