How to Keep a Specific Destination Page Size When Combining Metafiles

Print this Topic Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Usually an empty picture is resized to match the first metafile pasted to it. To keep a specific destination page size when combining metafiles:

1.Set the Picture size of the empty Destination window before pasting any metafiles by clicking on Edit, Properties, Picture.
2.Add a "dummy" object such as a line.
3.Paste the first metafile. The size of the destination page will not change to match the first pasted metafile because the picture is not empty.
4.Delete the "dummy" object.
5.Paste the remaining metafiles.

For more information about setting the Picture size, see Picture.
