Hi, We are extracting information from FM 2017 technical documents into the MIF format for processing in other systems. The documents have many embedded graphics that were copied into FM not referenced.. These come out in the MIF as a DIB section which has been encoded as unsigned bytes with hex ect.

Does anyone know how I can re-hydrate this MIF DIB section into the real image?

Is producing a PDF from the Fm files, then placing the (cropped?) PDF untenable?

That was actually a thought. However we are already processing the MIF files for other data, so it would be a simple matter to extract the DIB section from the MIF file using that code. I However I have no idea how that section was encoded so I can not un-encode it. I was hoping someone knew. If not I will have to pursue the PDF route. FYI I also have looked at saving the FM file as HTML, thus getting the graphics that way, but the HTML save is way too slow as these are large FM files.
