Improving SAS Enterprise Graphs on Powerpoint

Hi,

I am concerned about the quality of SAS graphs when pasted in MS powerpoint.

 

I am building a powerpoint report and have produced my graphs in SAS enterprise guide. However, when I copy and past the SAS graphs on PowerPoint, they seem to be blurred and low quality. Is there anything I can do to make the quality of SAS graphs pasted in PowerPoint to be similar to the original graphs generated in SAS?

 

Thanks

Re: Improving SAS Enterprise Graphs on Powerpoint

Create graphs in an SVG format to help maintain quality. 

Use SG procedures instead of SAS/Graph procedures. 

If you have SAS 9.4+ there is ODS PPTX that allows you to create graphs directly into PowerPoint. 

Specify your graph size and DPI to avoid rescaling picture between copy and paste.
