I have Printmaster 2011 Gold. I am trying to use chore clip art that is in WMF format. Is it not compatible with the newer versions of Printmaster? When I try to open the files of art, it shows nothing there. However, if I look in the same folder with Microsoft word the graphics are there. So, I know the files aren't empty. What can I do to be able to use this clip art in my projects?

Since PM2011 does not support WMF, the workaround is to open WMF in another program that supports it as a scalable object. While Paint cannot scale a WMF, Microsoft Word can. So open it in Word, then drag the corner to make it really large. Copy/paste it into your PM project.
So even though you lose the scalability of the graphic, at least you get a less pixelated raster version of it.
Hopefully, it won't matter that the graphic also loses its transparent background.
You can insert a background graphic in Word, under the WMF, group them, scale the group and then copy/paste into PM2011 so that it blends into the background you are using.
