Does anyone have an efficient method for generating a high resolution image of a Mathematica graphic, which can be directly read into MS Word 98 ? Generally, I use the cut/paste approach to move figures into documents, but in this case, I am working on a very large Word document, and would like to have only Word active (as opposed to both Word and Mathematica.) I would also like to be able to save ANY figure as a stand-alone file, to simplify passing projects results to other scientists. SO - I am using a Macintosh 8500 with 128 Mb memory, and Mathematica version 3.0. I have tried using the following: graph = Plot [Sin[x], {x,0,20}] Display["sinplot.tiff", graph, "TIFF"] This produces a TIFF file on my computer, at a default image resolution of 72 dpi. Then I tried to improve the resolution, using the following: Display ["sinplot.tiff", graph, "TIFF", ImageResolution ->200] This locks up the computer, crashes the operating system, and does all sorts of other undesirable things. I have also tried ImageResolution values of 100, 300, etc., to no avail. However, the ImageResolution value of 72 DOES work. Obviously, I don't understand this command as well as I thought. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong ? Beverly Bradley beverly.bradley at psislidell.com
