PM80571: Image quality of Cognos Charts degraded in Cognos for MS Office documents
Closed as suggestion for future release.
Information comes from previous PMR (62410,999,649):?Problem description?It appears the issue is when using Cognos for MS Office the images are displayed in bitmap ( .bmp ) format and produce a lower quality /blurry version of the image. Whereas the PDF export are using vector graphics so they are of better quality.??Client test case:?Using with the Office Plugin.?Open Microsoft Powerpoint 2010?Click on the IBM Cognos tab in the ribbon.?Launce the IBM Cognos plugin.?Login to server.?Navigate to report.?Select the report and select import content.?Rather than run the report live, we tend to use the Most Recent Version option.?Import a chart.?At this point the chart appears, not as ?crisp? as it is in Cognos, but when printing the document the chart is almost unreadable.??Here are the steps when we try just using the image directly.?Sign into Cognos Connection. Navigate to report. Open saved HTML version of report.?Right click chart -> select Download Chart option.?Save the image locally (defaults to a .png file as attached)?Open Powerpoint or word and import the image.?Again, the chart appears but it is not ?crisp? as it is in Cognos.
