Previously, LyX worked perfectly with the images in the final output PDF being in lovely and perfect vector form.
However, I recently formatted my hard disk and reinstalled LyX. I then tried outputting a PDF file, from the exact same LyX and EMF files. However, now the images in the output PDF are rasterized/pixelized/fuzzy.
Not surprisingly, I prefer the first version (vector). Please let me know what I should do to fix this.
I have tried fiddling with the EMF to EPS converter settings but these haven't worked. What I've tried:
Under Tools > Preferences > File Handling > Converters > Enhanced Metafile -> EPS:
- Changed "convert" to "magick".
- Remove "-density 300".
- Unchecking the "Converter File Cache" "Enabled" box.
How these EMF files were produced. I draw my graphs in Microsoft Excel first. I select the graph, copy (Ctrl+C), then paste (Ctrl+V) into LyX. LyX then converted these into EMF files (which were saved in the same folder as the LyX file). So these EMF files were from before I formatted my hard disk (I don't know if that matters). (When formatting my HD I backed up my files on an external HD and now I've copied them back.)
