== Importing MetaPost drawings into MS Word ==
MS Word can import many graphics formats, but not PDF. To allow a Word user to import a drawing created in MetaPost, the PDF can be converted to encapsulated postscript as follows:
* Create a PDF drawing (see "Exporting MetaPost drawing as PDF files" above).
* From the command line, convert to EPS using pdftops:
pdftops -eps -pagecrop myfile.pdf
* Import the EPS file as a picture into Word.
Note that the preview on-screen in Word is of poor quality, but when printed it should have the full quality of the original.
