[R] Graphs in Windows 95/95

Dear R-Listers,
I'm a new R user and I've got some problems with copying/saving graphs in
Windows Metafile Format.
If I copy a graph from the R window (in Enhanced Metafile Format) and then
paste it in WinWord 95, then everything is fine, apart from the fact that
a) lines become a little bit thicker when the graph is printed; and b)
dotted lines loose a little bit of resolution.
However, if I copy a graph from the R window (still in Enhanced Metafile
Format) and then paste it in a (vectorial) drawing program for "manual"
restyling, then something always goes wrong (e.g., typically some elements
get lost). Exactly the same happens when I save a graph in Enhanced
Metafile Format and then import the saved graph in Word or in a drawing
Does anyone have experience with this problem? Isn't there any chance to
save graphs in plain Windows Metafile Format (as opposed to Enhanced
Metafile Format), which maybe creates less problems?
Thank you very much for your help and best regards,
Maurizio Pisati
