Copying Visio Diagram in Fusion VM to Office for Mac 2011
Posted on 2012-09-10
I'm having trouble googling this one as it doesn't seem like a very common thing to run into.
Our MacBook users have a Windows 7 virtual machine to use for some software that won't work in Mac, and is available for all the other reasons a VM comes in handy.
Anyway, we have not found a great alternative to Visio to run directly in Mac OS, so Visio is run in the VM. We have Office 2011 for Word, Outlook, Excel, and PowerPoint running on Mac OS.
Our problem comes in when we want to copy a Visio diagram into Word running on the Mac. The diagram will get copied, but in what seems like a jpeg format, not a vector graphic. So, when we try to enlarge the picture in Word, it looks like the quality of a blown up picture off of a 10 year old camera phone.
We've tried saving the Visio as a .svg but are unable to get it to open in Word 2011. That isn't even the ideal solution, as we'd really like to copy/paste for the ease of everything. We'd also like to avoid purchasing a second copy of Word/Office just for the VM.
Does anyone have any insight on why this is the case and if there is any ideas to make this happen?
Thanks for any suggestions!
