Hello Hermann,
what is exactly the problem?
Where do you have to import it?
Did you try to import text as graphics?
In my experience, the text is the main problem - did you think of adding
text later in your graphics program?

This is my problem: I use a Truetype font (Bodoni) throughout my thesis. =
There is no problem telling Mma to use this font ($Textstyle etc.)  in =
all the graphics (and they look very well inside Mma) but I have =
discovered NO WAY to OUTput these graphics into Winword.
The simplest solution (Copy&Paste) would be the finest, but
1.	Copy as WMF clips my graphics somewhere inside (intolerable); besides =
that it would work.
2.	Display[..., "Metafile"] ignores my font settings, so I get Courier =
and no text upside etc.

I have tried to add text or change the text font in a graphics program. =
Changing font requires (in my programs) selecting text, that is all =
numbers on the axes, all labels etc. - VERY tedious.
Of course is one drawback of this method the destruction of a =
(semi-)automatic link to the original graphics; more important to me is, =
that I had to do this for many pictures.
I have sent the above piece of text to WRI, but it seemed to disappear =
Thanks for your reply.
