Pretty overlays from ChemStation C.01?

Has anyone found a good solution for creating high quality overlays?  We currently prepare the overlays in ChemStation and paste them into Word.  Creating and pasting into Word is a finicky process.  We are struggling with the appearance of text and plot lines.

We are using ChemStation C.01 with data analysis hosted on virtual AIC.  This creates additional hurdles as images are often changed by the remote desktop.  But we can export x,y values via exporting to clipboard without corruption. 

Note: this is UV and MSD data, I don’t think we can get MSD TIC x,y from IR with C.01.05.  Please correct me if I’m mistaken.  If we could get a file with x,y plots for every channel that might create faster options.

I can paste the x,y values into Excel and get a little better control over the appearance, but it isn’t great.  It isn’t quick or easy, either.  Does anyone have a recommendation for either better graphing software?  Another solution that gets high quality overlays into Word?
