Exported image is vertically too wide
If you are using a Windows 7 computer, there is a slim chance that you can export distorted images using UpSlide (see example below).
This is particularly true if you are using some kind of remote desktop (Citrix or RDP for example).
Rendering in Excel - normal
Rendering in PowerPoint after export - vertically distorded
UpSlide uses the EMF (Enhanced MetaFile) format to present Excel data in PowerPoint and Word.
And it seems that this format can be broken for specific configurations, resulting in an incorrect ratio when exporting from Excel to Word/Powerpoint.
- First, make sure that everything is Up to Date in Windows Update (in most cases this is managed by your IT).
Control Panel -> System and Security -> Windows Update
- Finally, Microsoft have released a hotfix to solve this issue: Microsoft KB2768741 Hotfix
Please reboot your computer after installing the hotfix.
