My colleague is using unstructured Frame version 13.0.5.547. He used the option to convert graphics and tables from absolute to relative and exported a book to HTML5 in FrameMaker. The WMF graphics imported by reference don't show up in the HTML file. There are blank spaces in their place. The other graphics/photos are JPEGs and they come in fine.

It's not a matter of Fm nor HTML5...if you want to provide vector images in something other than a PDF, you need SVG. If you're ok with your images being bitmaps, not vectors, you can have them convert upon conversion.

WMF isn't a web format, so if you want vector images, you should be placing SVG, and if you're ok with bitmaps, save as JPG/PNG, depending on your image.

We have thousands of documents with WMF files in them, so it sounds like HTML5 is a no go for us then.

Is there any way to batch convert WMF to SVG? Even if we did that, would we have to re-import every single one into every document?

We could try it. I think the resolution might not be high enough, but we could test it. What option should we pick to do the conversion?

Check your conversion settings in the Publish pod.

re: We have thousands of documents with WMF files in them, so it sounds like HTML5 is a no go for us then.

What application created these (presumably vector) WMFs?

re: Is there any way to batch convert WMF to SVG?

That's why I asked about the master app. Adobe Illustrator, for example, can be scripted, and I used to use it to perform batch ops on another vector format: EPS. I don't know that current versions of AI still open WMF, preserve vector, preserve font, and/or can export it to SVG. If it works, I also don't know if curves are left as is or converted to polylines, which can explode file size as well as impair image quality.

re: Even if we did that, would we have to re-import every single one into every document?

That might be scripted (or not, if size attributes are sufficiently different between the formats, not to mention where FM is cropping the image in the anchored frame).
