Hi ElMaestro,

» After some additional processing steps I may want to pull up some of the files like Fooo.wmf to the screen for quick eyeballing and nothing else.
» This seems to be very difficult. R allows me create a plot, save a plot as wmf/emf, but not view a plot saved this way?

Correct. R reads only bitmaps (PNG, GIF, TIFF, JPEG). Vector formats (PS, PDF, SVG, EMF/WMF, EMF+) no way. Package rsvg renders SVG into bitmaps.
Hence, you have to leave R. I suggest Inkscape or import the file in OO (Writer, Impress) and check it there.
