.eps from MSOffice saga

I need .eps figures because 90% of what I write, I typeset in LaTeX, and LaTeX is nicely integrated with .dvi viewers like YAP that allow you to go back and forth to your LaTeX editor, i.e., WinEdt, but for that you must use .eps figures.

MSOffice makes it imposible for me to print .eps files. The workaround is this. Print each figure as .pdf, then use Adobe Writer, File, Export, EPS. Unfortunately it prints the whole page, not just the figure, so you still have to use GSView to trim the figure. For that, you use GSView, Convert PS to EPS, automatic box.

If your copy of Adobe does not export to eps, download this eps driver http://authorservices.wiley.com/bauthor/install.asp
