I think Copy As->PICT on Mac and Copy As- >Metafile on Windows should copy a vector based image for Mathematica graphics. Is it possible that whatever application you're pasting into either doesn't accept a vector image or that it display a bitmap on screen while uses the vector image while printing? What app are you pasting into? -Rob
