st: Importing Stata graphs to Word
In the recent past I have successfully copied and pasted Stata graphs into Powerpoint and then been able to edit them. I copy the graph as a Windows metafile, paste it to Powerpoint, and then choose "Edit Picture" (using right-click) and select "Yes" when it asks me if I want to convert is to an MS Office drawing object. (Then I also ungroup the objects.)
However, when I try this recently, it doesn't work. The graph copies fine, but after I choose the Edit Picture option the lines and labels disappear. All that is left are the blue and white background objects. I've tried all the work-arounds I can think of, including copying to Word, copying to Powerpoint on other computers, re-ordering the objects, copying graphs as enhanced metafiles, and using different color schemes.
If anyone has any insight into my error, I would be extremely grateful.
