viewing .eps file in Word doc



  • 1. I want to type over a line with moving everything over.
  • 2. Chart trouble!
    While I am editing my chart within a document in word it looks different from when I return to the rest of the document to edit other things. Why does it change and more importantly, how can I keep the 'editing' view? Thanks
  • 3. Word flipping pictures in header
    I have a company logo graphic in my header. It is the right way up in my document. When other users access this file, the picture flips in the header. When I reopen the file, the picture stays flipped.
  • 4. Word 2000 - free rotate
    Following a hard drive format, word doesn't allow me to free rotate imported clip art or pictures. It used to OK. Can anyone point me at what might have changed? Also: The clip art feature used to be integrated into word but now seems to be a pop up (rather than a column on the right hand side of the page)
  • 5. Please recommend a good book or tutorial
    I really need to learn more about formatting and positioning of graphics, objects, etc. in Word (Office 2003), esp. modifying picture position and text wrapping. Right now I just keep trying different things until something works, not really knowing what I'm doing. Can someone recommend a book or tutorial? My office training never seems to cover this area, even though I've asked them to. Thanks!

Hi Joan,

What version of Word are you using?
What method are you using to insert the graphic into Word?
How was the .EPS graphic created?
What name/version of EPS  filter did you install/download?

1.Viewing .EPS files on MAC Word 98 or Word V.x


In the process of a book-writing project, I have been saving figures
(from MATLAB) as .EPS files.  When I insert these as pictures within
Word 98 or Word V.x, they get inserted as blocks with a message that
the picture was not saved with a preview.  I do realize that such
pictures can be printed on a postscript printer but I have failed to
print them on most postscript printers.  (I can convert the Word files
to a .ps file and then use a Adobe distiller to create a pdf file to
see the pictures, but this not a workable solution, it turns out). 
This is because, the publishing company wants the final product as a
Word file.

Can anyone suggest a way to allow Mac Word files to preview/see the
EPS files and then print them out to the wide range of postscript

3.'.eps' files will not view on screen

'.eps' images that were used in Word 2000 are not working 
correctly in Office XP.  A graphic does appear, but it's 
an empty box. Half the time, they will not appear on 
screen, but will print fine.  My 'place holders' 
in 'options > view' is not checked.  Other images 
(.tif, .jpg, & .bmp) view fine on screen and print.  Any 

Any help is appreciated!

4.Word Mac doc graphics cannot be viewed by Word Windows users

This is related to some other threads I've read.  I have graphics in the
Word doc created by OmniGraffle.  When I try to view the document in a
Word Windows program, I get an error message that says it "QuickTime and a
TIFF (LZW) decompressor are needed to see this picture."  So much for
cross platform document compatability!

I installed QuickTime on the Windows machine (along with iTunes, force
fed) but nothing happens .

Any suggestions?  I really don't want to save each individual chart as a
separate file and re-import!       

5.Cannot view EPS image in Word 2002, but prints ok

Recently upgraded to Word 2002 from Word 2000. Since 
upgrading, I can no longer view certain EPS graphics on 
screen. They print fine but I need to see them on screen. 
I don't have 'Picture Placeholders' selected, and I do 
have 'Drawings' and 'Drawing Objects' selected under Tools 
> Options. These EPS files are created from PDFs using 
Adobe Acrobat (5.0.5) via File > Save As > EPS (save with 
(tiff) preview). 
Any ideas? THANKS in advance for any help you can offer.
