I suggest you ...

Either support WPF-Visual-to-Metafile API or support new XPS clipboard format in MS Office

I'd like to paste the WPF vector output into MS Office. If Metafile export isn't supported then how about an XPS clipboard format that MS Office can consume.

        Absolutely. The only way we can put WPF control content into office docs right now is as rasterised bitmaps, which is obviously very poor from a quality/fidelity point of view.

        I did in fact find (using Reflector) that there IS visual -> metafile code in WPF, but it's buried inside the printing code for non XPS printers.
