EMF are useful for embedding in Windows documents because the vector portions of the EMF can be resized without loss of quality. However, since EMF does not support font embedding and is exclusively a Windows format, it is not commonly used as an interchange format between users.
To export an EMF file, make sure a map or layout view is active. On the Share tab, click Export Map or Export Layout , depending on the active view, to open the Export pane. Change the File Type to EMF. Set a name and location for the file, as well as any other properties, and click Export.
The following properties are available when exporting to an EMF file:
Output as image
Export vector content as an image. For maps or layouts containing vector layers with a high density of vertices, this can drastically reduce the output file size.
The effective dpi of the vector data in the layout. DPI is available only when exporting a layout. When exporting a map, the dpi is calculated automatically.
The amount of image resampling. The control determines the effective resolution of raster content on output. For instance, if the output image quality ratio is set to 1:2 and the output resolution is set to 300 dpi, the raster content is output at approximately 150 dpi. In many cases, the raster data can be included at a lower dpi than the vector data without visibly affecting quality, reducing the output file size.
Convert character marker symbols to polygon
Controls whether marker symbols based on font characters are exported as font characters or as polygons. Check this option to view the output on a machine that does not have the appropriate fonts installed when you cannot embed the fonts due to licensing or file format restrictions. This does not apply to text, only marker symbols based on fonts.
