This works for me:

1. Select graphics cell.
2. Copy it to the clipboard.
3. In the "Edit" menu choose "Convert Clipboard". In the dialog box go 
   for Encapsulated PostScript. Click "Save in File".
4. EPSF file generated this way can be placed into LaTeX2e or LaTeX209
   document using, e.g.

  \setlength{\epsfxsize}{6.5cm}                % scaling of the figure
