Subject Re: pdftops eps font issue
Date Fri, 08 Jul 2011 10:24:42 GMT
Looking at the other posts on this thread too, the suggestion of other 
formats from FOP was raised. I found this page:


So can you not use FOP to generate a Postscript file instead of a PDF 
which sounds easier to convert to EPS?

Also I googled 'ps to eps' and it threw up a few potential converters 
including a GNU perl based tool and others.
