Importing graphics

The Graphics Builder has several file format filters to allow you to import graphics from other applications, such as drafting programs, illustration programs, presentation packages, scanners, etc. After a graphic is imported, you can use the graphics builder to edit the image.

Graphics files can be dragged from a third-party application (such as Windows Explorer), and dropped onto a page in the Graphics Builder.

By default, unavailable colors in an imported bitmap are dithered. To disable this feature, choose Tools|Options in the Graphics Builder, and clear the Dither bitmaps on paste option. If dithering is disabled, unavailable colors are replaced by the closest match in your color palette.
