Issues creating PDF's from xls spreadsheets containing EMF chart images

When trying to create a PDF from an xlsx spreadsheet that contains data and also EMF images (charts), however non of the charts are visible after the PDF has been created, I have seen earlier posts where you talk about support EMF files as a project enhancement so can you please tell me if/when EMF images will be supported as this is causing a great deal of additional work on behalf of the users having to copy and paste as PNG formats to be able to get their charts to display.

I do have sample files that I can supply if these are needed
