I'm creating some fairly straightforward word documents through DocIO which include pre-generated diagrams. These diagrams used to be in PNG format, but we decided we wanted vector images so we started using EMF files. We exported the diagrams as EMF files and put them into our document generator, but now they're all mirrored and illegible! I found a similar issue on Microsoft's support ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/274758/en-us ) but that pertains to a very old version of word. Is this something anyone else has come across?
