The easiest way to do this is to copy you graphic object to the clipboard. You
can then convert this as necessary and paste into the program of you choice. 
Convert clipboard is an option under edit. Alternatively if you dont use a PS
printer you can convert the graphics cell itself and then C&P. This has the
advantage that by converting the "complicated" Graphics you reduce the memory
they occupy.
