When copying from Grapher to another program, the default is to use the embedded Grapher format for the pasting format. This allows you to double-click on the graph in the other program and make edits in Grapher. Many programs convert the pasted graph into a metafile (WMF or EMF). In older Grapher versions, the image was copy and pasted using the screen resolution for the pasted resolution. This is normally 96 DPI. In versions 12 and newer, the resolution is increased to the default printer resolution for the pasted resolution. This is normally much higher and depends on the default printer specification. Typically, this is 300 DPI or higher.
To increase the resolution of images:
- Upgrade to Grapher 14. Newer versions have dramatically improved the resolution when copy/pasting to a metafile format.
- Copy the graph from Grapher, as normal. When pasting, select the program's Paste Special option. Paste as an Image or Device Independent Bitmap.
- Export the graph using the File | Export command. Recommended formats include BMP, PNG, TIF, or EMF. Insert the exported file into your other program.
