Subject Re: pdftops eps font issue
Date Fri, 08 Jul 2011 07:34:38 GMT
´╗┐A quick look online (I googled 'pdf to eps') reveals a number of 
potential solutions. But forum link 
http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=59787 was interesting in 
that is sounds as if there is no absolutely perfect solution. Some 
convert to bitmap so lose quality, while others have various other 
problems. One suggestion even suggested rebuilding the pdf in eps format 
from scratch (I suspect that is unacceptable!).

I do quote from that forum link though: "EPS is another 
Adobe-proprietary file format, specifically belonging to Illustrator but 
Photoshop can create and work with some form of it. Here's my question: 
what are you trying to accomplish in this conversion? Is it necessary to 
convert the file to EPS, or is that mainly a file format you're most 
familiar with?"
