Hi Support-Team,

I'm using version 6.4 of Essential PDF. I draw an EMF image (created at runtime from another third-party component) into a PDF document, but the letters are just too small compared to the metafile.

Creating the metafile with EmfOnly (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.drawing.imaging.emftype.aspx) results in a correct lettersize, but also squeezes the letters together (a known issue).

So I have to create the metafile with EmfPlusOnly or EmfPlusDual which causes the in the beginning mentioned decreased lettersize.

Any suggestions :)
