Copying blocks into other applications

You can copy a diagram to the Windows Clipboard, then paste it into another application, such as Microsoft Word or Excel. You can also save a diagram as a WMF file for insertion in another application.



Edit > Copy

Copies pictures of blocks into other Windows-based applications. Common Window elements (like title bars, control-menu boxes, scroll bars, and minimize and maximize boxes) are not copied when you use the Copy command.

File > Save As Metafile

Saves a diagram file as a Windows metafile (WMF). You can insert the WMF in an application file that recognizes this file format.


Copies a picture of the entire Embed window into the Clipboard. From there, you can paste it into another Windows-based application using the application’s paste command.
