I tried this in gs 8.53 (which is what GSView calls), Adobe Distiller 7.0.7 and Photoshop CS2 (9.0.2). The first two were fine. CS2 said it did not have the fonts used (which might actually be true, if surprising) and changed the font of the labels, but converted everything else fine.

So is it possible that you have CS2 set to suppress unknown fonts (I have not looked even to see if it is possible)?

I think importing .ps into Illustrator is known to be iffy, and I have seen the recommendation to first distill to PDF and then import (so in R you could save directly to PDF).

[Run on Windows, use 'Save as' to postscript.]
