Just finishing up writing a thesis, in WordPerfect, with alot a graphs.  My
solution to this problem was to export all my graphs as a wmf file and then
import them into WordPerfect.  I had no problem resizing them once they were in
the document.  I also found that to had to change the font size in Mathematica
to 9 pt so that once they were resized, they lettering in the graphs looked the
same size as the text in my document did.

On a side note, to wanted to get my Mathematica notebooks in as Apendices.  To
do this I had mathematica convert them into pdfs and then I copied the pages
with Adobe's image tool and pasted them in as pictures. Perhaps is a better way
to do this, but it works.
