Chart pasted as WMF is missing elements

Recommended Posts

Hi there. I'm developing a newsletter / report in Affinity Publisher that involves producing charts in Excel and pasting them into the report. As I want to ensure proper printing quality once the output is exported as PDF, I'm pasting the charts in windows metafile or enhanced metafile, instead of in picture format (e.g. png / bmp). 

Problem is that quite randomly, Affinity decides to ignore certain elements of the chart (axis mostly). If I paste the object as a picture, the object comes up in full, so clearly Excel is exporting the information but it seems that it is the Affinity Publisher end, the one struggling to render the full set of elements. 

Screen capture of Excel:

Screen capture of the same object, now pasted as PNG (all the axis present):


Any help, much appreciated.
