File=>Send to PowerPointΒΆ

This command inserts the selected pages of the active document as WMF or EMF files into a PowerPoint document. PowerPoint must be installed on your computer.

To invoke this function, right click outside the page or on the page tab and select the command Export=>Send to PowerPoint from the pop-up menu.


Select Pages

Lists all pages of the active document. The selected pages are exported. Hold down the Shift key to select a range of pages and hold down the Ctrl key to select a single page.

Portrait and landscape pages should not be mixed because PowerPoint can only create documents with one slide format. If no template is selected, the first selected UniPlot page sets the slide format.

Use PowerPoint Template
If this option is set, the specified PowerPoint template is used.
PowerPoint Template File

Sets the complete file name of a PowerPoint document (ppt or pptx).

To create a template you must use PowerPoint. The template can contain multiple slides. The last slide is used to insert the UniPlot page. This slide should contain a text object with the text UniPlot-Frame. The text object sets the position and size of the UniPlot page.

If the PowerPoint template contains a text object with the text UniPlot-Page-Title, UniPlot will replace the text with the page title displayed in the UniPlot document.

An example is located in the UniPlot\Template directory. The template file has the name UniPlot_landscape.ppt.


The pages are exported as EMF files. If EMF files are causing any trouble you can use the following command so that UniPlot creates WMF files. Type the following command into the command window:

WriteProfileInt("settings", "Export_EMF", 0)

PowerPoint 2000 SP3 and WORD 2000 SP3 cannot correctly display EMF files created with UniPlot. Text is displayed upside down. Therefore, UniPlot uses the WMF format for PowerPoint 2000.


Version Description
R2013.2 Fixed bug: The size of the template object UniPlot-Frame was not used correctly to calculate the size of the UniPlto page, if PowerPoint 2010 was used.
