Hi -

I am trying to insert some plots (generated in Octave using gnuplot)
into an OpenOffice document.  I have saved the plots as .eps files but
when I try to insert them into OpenOffice I get the warning "Unknown
Graphics Format."

Has anyone had success importing Octave-generated plots into
OpenOffice?  I realize that this question might be better suited for
OpenOffice folks but I thought I would start here in the event that
someone has come across this before.  I also realize that using LaTeX
for this might be much easier but I've been asked not to for this
project (another story for another time).  Thanks in advance.

This has been discussed on the list few years ago. I think it is
also in gnuplot FAQ. Depending on some other factors I usually
use one the following 3. Each of them has its own
pluses and minuses.

-- Make an eps file. Embed a bitmap preview (using ps2epsi utility
  or something similar). Looks great when you print
  document to postscript file, but looks crappy in itself
  (because the preview is of low resolution).

-- Make emf file instead of postscript. Looks good both in
  and in printout. Not as rich terminal as postscript (last
  time I checked). Also pretty much useless as a standalone file.

-- Make a png file (some other bitmaps will work OK as well,
  please do not use jpeg). Works OK as long as you do not
  scale it up or down.


Hope that helps.
