Re: [R] Getting eps into Word documents.

as far as I know (and I am not a specialist), there is no way of importing EPS in word, nor in openoffice, if you want to be able to "see" the graphics in the word processor and not only a placeholder. So either
a) use formats such as bmp, png,
b) under windows: convert eps to e.g. wmf using a tool, such as corel draw, or import the eps into powerpoint, then save it as wmf c) try to import the eps in inkscape (I think this opensource tool is available also for windows), but I have never tried this

.. I have to admit, that under linux I have found no way so far, to import an eps graphics into a word document (neither ooo writer, nor msword, running with wine).
