Below was posted to the newsgroup comp.lang.postscript with information regarding how to import EPS into MS Word.
Newsgroups: comp.lang.postscript Subject: Re: Microsoft's PostScript interpreter From: firstname.lastname@example.org (James E. Morrison) This subject never fails to raise my blood pressure. There is an EPS import filter for the latest Word versions that is supplied by Access Softek, Inc. In a word, it does not work. It is also painfully slow. By "does not work" I mean it does not support even a large subset of PostScript, it renders what it can render just awful and when it blows, which is often, it freezes the system, which for XP is hard to do. There is also no documentation provided by MS about what it is supposed to support and what it does not support and no one in MS seems to have slightest interest that it is a total blunder. To MS, PS is Apple stuff and, therefore, beneath contempt. The older, faster, reliable filter would display a TIFF header just fine so you can see the content of the file in your document. The new, slow, unreliable filter tries to render the PostScript directly and ignores any TIFF header. It pretends to be a PS interpreter and fails in almost every way. FWIW, the filter file is in: Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Grphflt\EPSIMP32.IMP. The file provided with Word 2000 and on can be replaced by the older version which works fine.
