1) As far as I know, there aren’t (YET) any conversion utilities. HOWEVER —
 
Draw .FIG’s can be imported into almost ANY Deskmate application.
 
2) **** NEWS FLASH ****
 
In the Beta Stages, but released to the public on PC_Link/America Online, Tandy Research and Development has created a ClipArt Editor! Basically, here’s what you do (when you get the program — I’ll upload it here on Delphi sooner or later :D ):
 
You Create an “OBJECT”. This means that you draw a picture, using whatever methods you choose. Then you “SELECT ALL” (Control-A), and hit the F4 menu (I think) and “Make Object”.
 
Then, you can head on over to the clip art editor and Import the image into a clip art format! Or, you can do like lazy me did and stick the clip art onto the clipboard, then pasted it into the clip art editor.
 
Already, in just 3 weeks, over 90 people downloaded one of my creations on PC-Link. I took all of the clip art that deskmate came with, and did a Ted Turner — I Colored them! Now, the cute little rose is Red, with a grey Vase, the silly bug has green eyes, yellow legs and a blue back (I think). It’s really an amazing thing to have — they don’t really give any documentation beyond a little README.DOC type file. But it’s enough.
 
3) Hmm…
 
I cant’ think of anything yet…. although, once again… there are some converters for Lotus 1-2-3 for Deskmate that allow you to import the graphs into Draw, etc… but nothing stand-alone.
 
Hope this helps :)
