Visio - Convert ".svg" to ".emf" format

Visio - Convert ".svg" to ".emf" format

Visio - Convert ".svg" to ".emf" format

My goal is to convert pictures from ”.svg” format into “.emf”, remaining the size, resolution, etc!!
The best solution that I found was using Visio, because of the quality after conversion and also if I need to resize the pictures, they don’t lose quality.
Please check the picture that I am sending.
This picture shows the appearance when I open a .svg file in Visio 2010. As you can see, the image is very clear and the limits well defined!

(picture. 1)

I have already fit the drawing to the page using this tip:

To get the emf format I save this file as “.emf” format:

(picture. 3)

The quality is good when it is opened with Microsoft Picture Manager, but the problem is detectable when this picture is inserted on the software that I want to use. The “.emf” file looks well, but when I convert from svg to “.emf”, Visio inserts an invisible frame around the image, if I open this emf file with paint it looks like it is inserted 1 pixel size for all borders!!!

(picture. 4)

As you can see here, the size image from Visio should looks like this (Inkscape) but it’s inserted a frame like this:

(picture. 5)
(picture. 6)

Does anybody know how to get a solution to this, using either Visio or other software?

I appreciate all feedback.
