The Windows Metafile (WMF and EMF) formats are vector formats that may or may not also contain a raster image.
EMF/WMF Vector files can be read and written as raster images in the Imaging Pro toolkits. They can be read and written as vector images in the Document and Medical Imaging toolkits.
File constants associated with this file format are:
|Constant||Read Support||Write Support||Description|
|FILE_WMF||Yes||Yes|| Windows Metafile.|
|FILE_EMF||Yes||Yes|| Windows Enhanced Metafile.|
When WMF and EMF files are rasterized, they are either 8 or 24 BPP.
The following table indicates which objects LEAD can load and which objects it can save:
|Background color and mode||Supported||Supported|
|Round Rectangle||Restricted Support||Restricted Support|
|Text(Color and Font Type)||Supported||Supported|
Note: When working with LEADTOOLS annotations (rather than image files), you can save the annotations as WMF or EMF files containing vector graphics that can be used in other applications.
