# [Tex/LaTex] Copying figure from Word to LaTeX

graphics

I have a figure drawn in Word. I would like to include this in my LaTeX document without redrawing it.

I think there's a strategy that combines the best features of some of the other answers.

• Select all the elements of your picture - as R. Schumacher suggests - and group them.

• Go to save -> save as type - save as PDF (not save as Adobe PDF from the top save menu).

• Under Options, check save selection.

• Save and view.

You may want to use pdfcrop to remove whitespace before you include the figure in your document. pdfcrop comes with your TeX distribution.
