    So I don't use Inkscape, but it does seem like you were on the right track except that I don't know how converting text to text would do anything. I have no idea why Inkscape would even have such a feature or what it would do. But converting text to paths should get around the issue. If my googling is correct, I think you can convert text to paths with: Path > Object to path. Another possible workaround would be exporting to another format, like PDF or even PNG... especially if you don't need to print it. Honestly, I'd expect PDF to work without any changes.

  • The png makes the image blurry for me and since there are really small sentences I would like a good resolution of the image... Thanks for suggestion about Path now I will try it.

    Don't skip trying PDF. SVG is somewhat notorious for having text related issues in many different situations, but I'd be surprised if PDF produced this same issue. They're both vector formats so nothing would really change... aside from the issue going away hopefully.

    Pixelated is the term I would use. But yea, there are two possibilities: The PDF could contain raster images, which won't scale well, but there's no way the image in the question has anything raster in it unless something really funky happened. The likely reason is that your Word version doesn't have a proper support for PDF files. Newer versions handle PDF just fine, but I remember there being some issues in older versions of Word. I could be wrong, but I seem to remember Word kind of converting PDF files to raster when placed in (or whatever), which seems to fit with what you're describing.

    WMF is quite the legacy format though and not without it's own issues... Not to shit on WMF (or EMF), but looking at the screenshot some text is getting cut off vertically in the answer you posted below. Is it just a screenshot thing (zoom maybe)? It's happening in the kind of second row of info boxes on the left and right.
