I want to import my matlab figure in vector graphics format (.pdf or .eps) into word. I save the figure as .eps but then when I insert it as a picture in word it messes uo the fonts. What is the best way to do this?

Thanks,
Elnaz

The exporting part is fine, I think, the problem is that when importing in Word, it seems that it changes the font and messes up my grids.

try exporting to .png, then insert the .png into word. It should work OK.

.png blurs the image. I want to use vector graphics. When I zoom in it's very crisp but in the regular size, fonts appear in such a bold format.

I tried to use the "export_fig" function but then how should I use the image it provides as the output?

Thanks,
Elnaz
