I have just been trying this out myself and getting ready to report it.
Cutting and pasting is fine with bitmaps, but gives incomplete graphs with
metafile. Saving as gif or metafile then insert picture into Word doesn't
appear to work either. There is no bug report on this as far as I could

I am using rw0.64.1 with Windows 95 V4.0 and Word 97
