Graphics from Word to Latex

A rather complicated graph/picture is easier to make in word than in Latex. The question remains how to get this figure in Latex then. I found a way. It involves some steps, but in the end, it works! First I made a PDF from the figure in word. Then I selected the figure and pasted it in “microsoft office picture manager”. With the program, you can save the picture as PNG and this Latex can read when using the command: \includegraphics[width=.7\linewidth]{fig_thesis.png}.
