Reply to: Image element sizing question

I see. The only one of those three types (ISO, CGM, TIFF) that is natively supported is TIFF, however, scaling that will require implementing one or more of three attributes for the element: something for width, something for height and/or something for scale. The last one is used by XMetaL Author for our DITA solution but not documented in the Programmer's Guide yet nor is it editable in the XMetaL Developer CTM editor yet, so it would need to be coded by hand using a text editor. For an example see the setting “Scale-Attribute” in this file in XMetaL Author Enterprise 5.1: C:Program FilesXMetaL 5.1AuthorDITAXACstopictopic_ditabase.ctm

The other two image types will require embedding ActiveX controls and in that case (as noted earlier in this thread) you can control the size of the control using script.
