  • 2. Iron On Transfer
    Hi Everyone! I have a question concerning Iron On Transfers. We bought the Avery brand of T-Shirt Transfers and the instructions say to flip the text or images so that when it prints out and we iron it on, the words will look right. Unfortunetly, my roomates and I have spent nearly all weekend trying to figure out how to do this. We have already tried the drawing board in hope of turning and fliping it, but it doesn't give us the option. I would appreciate any help you could offer to us. We are running Microsoft Word 2002 on the XP System. Thanks everyone!! PS. It is just a three letter text that we are trying to work with.

  • 4. Working with Figures in Word 2000
    Hi, I am working on a template and I have created a 'figuresubtitle' style which should appear below every figure. In this style, I want to ensure that any figure which is copied before this stays with the figure subtitle in the same page. Of course, once we copy the figure, I can tell the users of the template to select both the figure and figure subtitle and select 'Paragraphs-->Keep with next'. But that should be repeated for every figure manually. Is there any other way by which I can incorporate this provision in the style of a template and ensure that both the figure and its subtitle stay together in the same page? Please let me know, Thanks, Kala

eps files into word 2007

Postby QW50aG9ueQ » Mon, 03 Sep 2007 21:38:02 GMT


I've a got a lot of graphs done in MATLAB software and exported as .eps 
files. Now comes my problem. When I insert them into word 2007 and convert it 
to pdf using a postscript printer, an error occurs... Here is the log of the 

%%[ ProductName: Distiller ]%%
%%[ Warning: Helvetica not found, using Font Substitution. Font cannot be 
embedded. ]%%
%%[ Error: undefined; OffendingCommand: 
`H0 ]%%
%%[ Flushing: rest of job (to end-of-file) will be ignored ]%%
%%[ Warning: PostScript error. No PDF file produced. ] %%

This do not occurs with every figures, but with most of them. I think it is 
something related with some kind of incompatibility between word 2007 and eps 
files. Maybe the word 2007's EPS filter is not so up to date as it should 
I concluded it because if I insert the same eps files into word 2003 and 
print into pdf and all goes fine.

Nevertheless, I cannot use word 2003 because I'm using some of the features 
of word 2007 that are not compatible with the 2003 version.

Can you help me with this issue?

Thanks in advance.

I think the error is not related to the Helvetica font, since distiller gives 
only a warning. The error comes after and I don't know what is the reason. I 
think is some kind of word 2007's EPS filter. I said 2007's filter, but I 
have the feeling that the filter that comes with word is not a new one...

I've converted all sorts of .eps files today to see if I can get your error. You 
could try to reinstall the .eps filter.
The filter is in a folder similar to this
C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Grphflt
Rename the EPSIMP32.FLT to EPSIMP32.OLD. Drag a new instance of the filter from 
your setup disk.
It does appear the filter is newer than what is on my older computer.

Hi Anthony,

Do you have a link to one of the EPS files that is causing the issue?  On a machine with only the Office 2007 EPS import filter I
didn't get the error on the Matlab produced EPS files I had available using the Office 2007 EPS Filter (EPS32Imp.flt) and an HP
Color Laser Postscript printer or a print to PDF printer.

When are you getting the error?  From your description it sounds like you have already imported the graphic into Word (at which
point the EPS filter is done with the file) and then sending it to PDF?

If you use the Word 2007 Save As PDF add in or print to PDF other than to Distiller do you get the same error?

What version of Acrobat and Distiller do you have and to what update level?

What is the version number of the EPSImp32.FLT filter that is in use on the PC?

Are you using a 32 or 64 bit version of Windows?


I think the error is not related to the Helvetica font, since distiller gives

What is happening is that Distiller is asked (in its preferences) to embed 
fonts, and Helvetica, which is called for in the PostScript files sent to 
Distiller, is not on your system.

So then we get into how does Helvetica get asked for anyway, since it's not 
on your computer?  I have a write-up on that at 
< http://www.**--****.com/ ; then look along the left side for 
"Where do fonts come from?"

Earlier version of the Adobe PDF driver, when it used to be called Acrobat 
Distiller in the printer list, included Helvetica as a resident font.  Later 
versions corrected that problem.  So you see, Windows can tell an application 
that a font is available when it really it not; then, when it's called for in 
a PostScript stream, Distiller can't find it.

And then you have the question of WHO asked for the font? Word? The EPS?  
Sounds to me like it's Word.  The EPS is a common element, and if the EPS 
called for Helvetica, it should error out in both versions.

Of course, you could just buy Helvetica! The Adobe Type Basics is $100 for 
all the fonts found on nearly all PostScript devices ever made; Helvetica ala 
carte is around $25.

I'm using Office 2007 up to date, Vista Home 32bits, Acrobat Professional 
8.1 as pdf printer (but I also tried with other free applications such as 
I can insert the eps files into Word 2007 and visualize them on the screen. 
Since the pictures are created from EPS files I cannot print the document 
into my deskjet without creating previously a pdf since it is needed a 
postscript printer (Word 2007 Save As PDF add in do not solve this since it 
is not a PS printer (it is not even a printer...) and therefore cannot 
interpreter correctly the EPS code.
I've tried something that will sounds stupid, but work here in my computer: 
I've imported the EPS files into Powerpoint 2007 and then I've copy them into 
word and all work fine (until now...). Since the filter is the same, it 
sounds a little bit strange..., perhaps is something that happens only on my 

My Word2007 filter is the EPSImp32.FLT. The version I don't know but it is 
dated of 26-10-2007 if it helps.

1.Importing EPS file into Word 2007

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
The "insert EPS file" functionality in Word 2007 seems to have been updated 
from previous releases, and isn't displaying or printing the content of some 
encapsulated postscript (eps) files properly.

The attached eps file, when inserted into Word 2007 (click on Insert tab, 
click on Picture), displays and prints with a gap in the blue line on the 
left-hand side of the plot. This gap is not present in Word 2003 or in other 
postscript viewers such as ghostview. I've also seen instances where the 
printed page just displays a message indicating a syntax error and doesn't 
print the picture at all.

I've tried searching the Microsoft web site but haven't been able to find 
anything about this kind of issue. Has anyone come across this and/or know if 
there are any options available to control how the .eps files are imported?

Thanks in advance.

3.word template file with EPS graphics causes word to crash


I have word vX for mac osX. I have a letterhead that has been created
as a template file. So that in theory when I create a new document, my
logo and contact details appear automatically.

When I try to save documents that are created from the template file,
word crashes. Also when I add more data than will fit on one page and
the text flows to a second page, mysteriously the footer info
disappears. My logo is two EPS graphics that reside in the header
section of the page.

Can anything be done about this?

Has MS addressed this issue in Word 2004? I would upgrade if I knew
for sure that it would work okay.

All I waant to be able to do is create sexy looking docs based on a
template, using eps graphics. Why is this so difficult?

Any help much appreciated.


4.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
