Metafile Properties

A metafile is a collection of Windows graphic commands that create text and images. Metafiles are usually transferred through the clipboard or by file. Metafiles can be imported with the Home | Insert | Graphic command. Metafiles can also be used to create a base map with the Home | New Map | Base command.

The Properties window has information and opacity control for a metafile.
