If you have a Screen Capture program, you could capture the figure, save it to a jpeg and then bring in that file.

What kind of Excel figure? If it is an embedded picture, copy that onto clipboard. Then open Powerpoint and paste onto a blank slide. Then save it as jpg, or gif, or png. Then open that saved file in Photosuite.

 

 

Your suggestion to create a file, maybe a jpeg file, using PowerPoint is excellent. That is how I have been importing figures to PhotoSuite. However, doing it that way involves a couple extra steps. I was wondering wheter I could import directly to PhotoSuite. Particularly since a menu item, File > New > File from Clipboard exists. However, on my machine the menu iten is not usable.

New from Clipboard works fine for me. Most likely it is an issue with the format(s) Excel is copying to the clipboard. Here is what I did:

 

I hit PrintSrc hit which copies the desktop as a bitmap to the clipboard.

I then Opened PhotoSuite 11

Did a New From Clipboard

 

Worked fine. I also had no problem copying a chart created in Quattro Pro X3 through the clipboard.
