graph distortion when copy paste

I have little trouble to copy the graphs form LABVIEW to Word, it becomes fuzzy when pasted in WORD, I know it is because of the soem strechting when it is pasted to fit into the page format of WORD. I tried to resizing it in LABVIEW Before I copy. it works if the  image is narrower than the page width.  I'm asking if LABVIEW itself can have soem control to allow the graphs keep their clarity whne pasted.

I don't think it's possible to prevent a scaled bitmap from becomming
unsharp. A graph line is typically one pixel, and if you shrink that pixel,
it becomes a subpixel that looks unsharp.

You might try to paste the picture in a drawing application (like The GIMP
or PS) and resize it there. The problem remains, but those packages have
more advanced resize filter options. LabVIEW's resize filter is simple
(probably linear interpolation, or a simple nearest pixel algorithm), and it
shouldn't have more options since it's not a drawing program. Same it true
for Word.

Only way to completelly prevent this problem is to work with vectors instead
of bitmaps. I think the newer LabVIEW versions (>8) have an option to copy
an object as metafile. I have no experience with it, but it might work...

You can also write the data to a file (tab delimited file) and open it in
Excel. Excel can make an object out of it that word understands, and this
object is scaleable. You can probably even use the report functions to do
this directly.

BTW: "soem" is spelled "zoom", in case you want to search on the term.

Hi Wiebe,

" BTW: "soem" is spelled "zoom", in case you want to search on the term."

I think he meant "some" instead of "soem" - just a case of too fast typingSmiley Very Happy

>>know it is because of the soem strechting

Not sure. He uses it twice, and "zoom" fit's both contexts, while some
doesn't. It doesn't really matter though 😉
