Since v27 of the Word template, it looks like sometimes the autoscaling of a rendered large image is not working any more like it used to be in v23/v24. Here is an example tested with MS Word 2010, PlantUML 7993, dot 2.36:

package PkgReference
package PP {
component CC {
folder FF {
database DD {
storage SS {
artifact AA {
rectangle RR {
node NN {
frame FR {
cloud CL {

Replying to my own question, since v27 of the Word template, it looks like the auto-rescaling is disabled by default, but I don't know exactly why.

To re-enable it, you may use the following syntax:

'@rescale auto

but it may not always work. In that case, you have to fall back to manual rescaling, like in the following example to 70%:

'@rescale 0.7

Rem: another manual rescale is also available in any environnemnt, see
