How do I export a clipart object from Draw to Microsoft Office?

If you want to save a clipart built in Draw in order to integrate it in a Microsoft Office document, follow these steps:

  1. right click on the object and select in context menu  ▸ Convert ▸ To Metafile;
  2. select menu File ▸ Export;
  3. check Selection checkbox;
  4. in dropdown list File format, select WMF - Windows Metafile;
  5. enter a file name;
  6. validate with Save.

You will get a .WMF file, which you could open or paste in your MS Office document.

NB: This procedure deals only with vector cliparts and only on Windows OS. It cannot work with bitmap picture.
