This FAQ applies to GRAPHER versions 1.x to 4.x without direct EPS export.
An [.EPS] file is generated by printing the graph to a file. You need to print with a PostScript driver in order to create an [.EPS] file.
- Click the Windows Start button.
- Select Settings then Printers.
- If you do not have a PostScript driver installed, click the Add Printer icon. Follow the directions and add any PostScript printer (usually PS appears in the printer driver's title).
- Select FILE for the printer port.
- Open the printer properties by right clicking on the printer and choosing Properties from the menu. Under PostScript output format on the PostScript tab choose Encapsulated PostScript [.EPS]. There is not a PostScript tab in most Windows NT 4 printer drivers, so you do not need this step under NT 4.
- To create an [.EPS] file from Grapher choose File | Print and select the PostScript printer.
- Next, the Print to File dialog box will be displayed. Enter the path and file name to use for the [.EPS] file. Make sure to use the [.EPS] extension on the file particularly if you are using Windows NT4. Click OK to write the map to an [.EPS] file.
An [.EPS] file produced in this manner does not contain a bitmap preview. Some software applications, including Grapher, need this bitmap to display the image. If this is the case, use another export format in Grapher, such as the Windows Metafile [.WMF], to generate the graphic to use in other software applications. Please do not send WMF files to “Mine Water and the Environment”.
