Embedding MS Office OLE object into a container RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    I am developing  an OLE container application, which has to store pictures created in other programs. In general, the objects are embedded fine. However, some MSOffice objects are displayed and printed poorly. For example, rotated text in embedded PowerPoint slides is displayed without rotation, wrong line styles are displayed for Visio drawings, etc.  If I activate an embedded object, it is correctly opened in server applications.  I have observed the same problem in Wordpad.  However, the objects embedded into MS Office documents are always displayed properly.  It seems that MS Office OLE container applications are using some API to draw the embedded objects using their native representation. Is this API publicly available? Or how can I otherwise render the embedded Office objects properly?

    Thanks in advance!
