Copy-Paste to word and sizing problems Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi,

I'd like to create my drawings and then select what I need and copy-paste to Word. The problem is: the size in Word is much bigger than the 100% size in Omnigraffle.

How can I align this somehow?

Cheers
 
I am getting pretty much the same size by using Edit > Copy As > PDF in OG5.

(After pasting to Word, any fine-tuning can, of course, be done by dragging a resizing corner)
 
Hm... Just Cmd-C would be quicker...
 
There are various ways of assigning a keystroke to it.

One would be to save the following code as an applescript, and assign a keystroke to the Applescript with something like FastScripts or Keyboard Maestro.

Code:
-- Copy as PDF
-- Assign to a keyboard shortcut with FastScripts or Keyboard Maestro ...


tell application id "sevs"
	set mnuCopy to my GetMenuItem("OGfl", {"Edit", "Copy As", "PDF"})
	tell application id "OGfl" to activate
	click mnuCopy
end tell


-- RETURNS A REFERENCE TO A CLICKABLE MENU ITEM
-- E.G. set mnuZoomFit to GetMenuItem("OGfl", {"View", "Zoom", "Zoom to Selection"})
on GetMenuItem(strAppCode, lstMenu)
	set lngChain to length of lstMenu
	if lngChain < 2 then return missing value
	
	tell application id "sevs"
		set lstApps to application processes where its creator type = strAppCode
		if length of lstApps < 1 then return missing value
		tell first item of lstApps
			-- GET THE TOP LEVEL MENU
			set strMenu to item 1 of lstMenu
			set oMenu to menu strMenu of menu bar item strMenu of menu bar 1
			
			-- TRAVEL DOWN THROUGH ANY SUB-MENUS
			repeat with i from 2 to (lngChain - 1)
				set strMenu to item i of lstMenu
				set oMenu to menu strMenu of menu item strMenu of oMenu
			end repeat
			
			-- AND RETURN THE FINAL MENU ITEM
			return menu item (item -1 of lstMenu) of oMenu
		end tell
	end tell
end GetMenuItem

on GUIEnabled()
	tell application id "sevs"
		if UI elements enabled then
			return true
		else
			activate
			display dialog "This script depends on enabling access for assistive devices in system preferences" buttons "OK" default button "OK" with title pTitle & "   " & pVer
			tell application id "sprf"
				activate
				set current pane to pane id "com.apple.preference.universalaccess"
			end tell
			return false
		end if
	end tell
end GUIEnabled
 
Thanks. Before doing this I quickly tested it and unfortunately have to say, the the copied PDF is the same size as "normal" copy-paste and that for example the font size in the diagram is much bigger. Using the same font "Arial" both in size 9 looks much bigger when pasting diagrams to Word...
 
Sounds frustrating ...

I'm not seeing this, so probably worth a quick email to the Ninjas through Help > Send Feedback ...
