Hi Phil

I found that saving the diagram as a png file and then inserting the png file in powerpoint works, and the resulting image has no border in powerpoint, but this isn't really a solution for me, as I am trying to find a /quick/ way to acheive this - I can already do it by cropping it in paint.net and then copy/pasting which takes about the same time/effort/clicks as saving it as a file first.

I'd really just like to use ctrl-c / ctrl-v but I don't understand how/why I am getting these borders.

Thanks again
RL

Hi Phil

In SEM builder, if I choose Edit-Copy, or just Ctrl-C, and then go to Powerpoint and do Ctrl V then the resulting figure is enclosed in a box. The only way I have found to avoid this is to paste it into a graphic program such as paint.net , remove the border by hand, and copy/paste that into powerpoint.

I am not saving the diagram to a file - just using copy/paste

Hope I'm explaining myself.

Thanks
RL

Is there a way to easily copy diagrams from SEM Builder, so that they are not framed with a box ? I need to copy them into Powerpoint and at the moment, the only way I can get rid of the box is to first copy it into a graphics program, resize and remove the box, and then copy/paste into Powerpoint. This is becoming very tedious. It would be great if I can Ctrl-C in SEM Builder and Ctrl-V in Powerpoint...

Not sure what you are referring to here, since if I build and estimate a model using the SEM GUI and then use the "Copy" button, the resulting image is not surrounded by a border. Note that you can save the image from within Stata in a variety of formats (e.g., ps, eps, pdf, etc.), all of which can be easily used in PowerPoint. As with "Copy", the resulting files do not have a border for me. Maybe that would work for you?
