using diagrams in microsoft word

My procedure for using Dia in Word documents:

1) Create Diagrams and Export to .wmf
   Note that problems with text can cause right side of text to become
cut off. .wmf export of text results in text that is larger than the
text shown on the screen.

2) In Word, menu-select  / Insert / Picture / From File /
   Select the .wmf file.

3) Picture can be viewed in Reading Layout. Menu-select  / View /
Reading Layout /.

4) Double click on picture (or context menu to 'Format Picture') and
select 'Size' tab. This is in 'Format Picture' dialog box.
   Increase size of picture to desired size on screen.

Does anybody have a better way?

This should go in FAQ.
