I have imported a PDF as a figure. Upon export to Word, the dimensions are scaled to fit the width of the document margins, and the figure becomes pixelated. This should not be the case. The dimensions should be as per original, and because I used matplotlib to generate the figures as a PDF, they should be scalable without pixelation.
PDF formatted figures are pixelated in Word exports
The Word export in Manuscripts does not presently include PDF formatted images in vector form. We have filed ourselves a bug report / feature request to investigate whether we will solve this by:
- rasterising the image better.
- by embedding them in resolution independent form also in Word exports (like we are capable of already for instance with the LaTeX export).
- converting the images to EPS (this is the least clear option of the three).
