Subject: Re: ods rtf with emf graphics
Unfortunately, EMF driver can't be used for ods/rtf (confirmed by SAS) yet.
I was recently told by a SAS tech support that from v9.2, SAS will have
a whole new suite of true type fonts for all kinds of graph drivers,
including SASEMF, hopefully it will make our life much easier by using
ods/rtf and the new SASEMF driver.
When you try png driver, did you redefine the resolution? You may want
to try xpixels and xpixels goption. By increasing the resolution, I think
you can probably get the high quality font you want. By default, the
png resolution is about 100dpi. You can increase it by increasing the
xpixels and ypixels, for me 300dpi would be good enough.
