Copy/Paste to PSP - Macromedia Freehand

For the last couple of years I had used FH9 to draw departmental org charts. I would Ctrl+A to select all, Ctrl+C to copy to clipboard, switch to Paint Shop Pro and Ctrl+V to paste. I got an image 464 X 491 pixels which, when saved as a gif worked just fine on my company's intra-net. When I do exactly the same thing in FHMX I get an image of 348 X 368.

    Default Copy/Paste to PSP

    For the last couple of years I had used FH9 to draw departmental org charts. I would Ctrl+A to select all, Ctrl+C to copy to clipboard, switch to Paint Shop Pro and Ctrl+V to paste. I got an image 464 X 491 pixels which, when saved as a gif worked just fine on my company's intra-net. When I do exactly the same thing in FHMX I get an image of 348 X 368. So far as I can tell, all export settings are the same in both versions. If I open the FH9 file in MX, it still copies and pastes into the smaller file. Am I missing something very elementary? In any case, how can I make MX copy and paste as FH9 did?

    EngMajor,

    Why not just draw your image in FHMX, scale it to the size you actually want it in your other doent, and then export it as a Gif directly from Freehand. You even have resolution and anti-aliasing options in your export dialog box. Seems like this would also eliminate any of the current guesswork that you are doing.

    Since your old and new widths of 464 and 348 are the same ratio as 96 ppi to
    72 ppi (1.333 to 1), I suspect that for some reason Paint Shop Pro is using
    a resolution of 72 ppi when pasting the image copied from FHMX. You were
    probably using 96 ppi before. I'm not familiar with PSP, but when you make a
    new doent, can you set the image size to inches and adjust the resolution
    to 96 ppi?
