As you can see here Microsoft has disabled in recent security updates importing *.eps vector images and as you can also see here Microsoft has added SVG vector images support only for Office360 subscriptions (lame!).

So now we are stuck having to use *.emf files even in Word 2016. Is there a straight way of exporting such files from PlantUML? Thank you

Not sure that directly generating *.emf files is possible in Java.

We could do something similar to PDF (see ) to export EMF but it's really not clear whether Batik/Fop is supporting EMF export.

Another possible option : if you find some command line tool that convert .eps/.svg to .emf, we could also use it to do the EMF export.
