Printing EMF

I often create Visio diagrams. These diagrams are saved
in Enhanced Metafile Format (*.emf). These EMF files can
be viewed and printed in any graphics program. The images
print fine on any printer. When these images are imported
into Microsoft Word 2002, there is a problem. Many of the
lines and text within the image are lost in the print
process, eventhough the image appears fine on the screen.
This problem is not printer specific (not a print
driver). Since the image prints fine in other software
packages, the problem must be somewhere in the MS Word
graphic filter / print processor.

Additional Information. All users have the same problem. It is not limited
to just Word 2002, but Word 2000 as well.

I will try this fix, however, users with Office 2000 are also experiencing
the issue. It is more than text, it is also lines from the diagram. Users
are not only at my company, but at other companies as well.
