Can I provide 2 resolutions for an image? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all;

    Here's the use case. We generate a chart and put it in a DOCX file as a bitmap. If they are viewing it on the screen we want to display a bitmap rendered at 96dpi. If we have a 600dpi image, all the borders, gridlines, etc. disappear.

    But when it prints, we want the 600dpi image because it will look so much better.

    Does OpenXML have the ability like PDF does to mark an image as print only or non-print only to display?

    thanks - dave

  • David,

    Just to let you know I combed through the specs and couldn't find mention of this feature. Maybe I didn't know the key words to look for though. Anyway, I agree, it's a very useful feature if it were available.

  • Hi David, the functionality that you are asking about is not currently supported in the latest version of Microsoft Word, but may be considered for a future version.
