Windows Metafile (WMF) is closely linked to the Windows graphical user interface. Among other things, it is used under Windows for the exchange of vector graphics via the clipboard, and some graphics programs
under Windows can also generate WMF files. Windows Metafile can be read by many programs that run under Windows, but other software, such as Ventura Publisher, also offers conversion programs that can convert WMF files into their own format. The WMF format is a vector format and stores graphics
as a sequence of design statements with associated parameters. The file extension for WMF files is *.wmf.
