Matlab .fig in a Word 2007 document

Subject: Matlab .fig in a Word 2007 document

Hi all,

I am writing a report in Word 2007 and copying my figures (.fig) into the document. It works fine but because I use a lot of accents and symbols in my graph axes, I use xlabel(.. 'interpreter','latex'), ylabel(.. 'interpreter','latex'). However, if I close Matlab and the document and reopen the document only, the axes are nonsense. If I run Matlab again the axis labels return to normal. However, I'm worried that those reading the document won't have a clue what is going on. Is there a way to stop this from happening? Aside from saving the doc as a .pdf and also sending that on, I don't know what else to try.

Any suggestions are welcome!!

What if you copy the figures as jpegs instead of figs into Word (using the MATLAB saveas command/option)?
