Re: [R] Problems with character spacing in windows metafiles...

I finally determined the problem, but not the specific cause.

For some reason, the WMF is resized when saved or copied from R. If you compare the same plot pasted into PowerPoint as both a bitmap and a WMF, the WMF has its height increased ~14% and its width decreased ~5% consistently. This is true whether you copy/paste or save the WMF.

At least, that is what occurs on my Windows XP machine with Office 2003 and R 2.3.1 installed.
