A Question about drafting pictures from ODG to PDF and then to a Comprehensive E-Book Format

David Nordahl
Dear Apache Open Office:

My name is David, and I have a troubleshooting/concern(s) on how to take some diagrams and convert into PDF (which I know how to do), and then place with the entire PDF into E-Book formats.

I have been searching for a way to do this, and the Graphs/Diagrams/Pictures will not transfer over.

In other words, the Graphs that are in my ApachOpenOffice.odg will go into PDF (like normal) but they do not transfer to eBook when I review the text, it does not show up.

I am Using Scribus 1.4.7 right now, freebie software, and PDFSimpli does not bridge the gap/jump.

I have tried ODG > Microsoft Word > PDF (or PDF back to Microsoft Word) > E-Book Format Scribus…
But how come the graphs will not transfer//And how do I not redo all my work from ODG all over again?

Is there a Flowchart for these conversions or does everyone redo their ApacheDraw ODG Diagrams? Help!

Prefer to do this the short way first!, Again any feedback is a great great thing!

A difference in raster vs vector graphics?

I found this: 

As of 1.5.x versions of Scribus, you can now import PDFs as vector graphics files. Previously, all you could do would have been to rasterize a PDF into an image frame. This leaves you with some limited and in some cases less than ideal ways you can edit the frame. Now with the ability to bring PDFs as vectors, you will be able to use the vector editing abilities already built-in to Scribus. Here I want to go through an example of how this might be useful.
