Don't know the right jargon for asking this, but: I sometimes want to export or save Mathematica text material (e.g., a Table, or some output lines) or graphics containing text (e.g., PlotLabels or Text material in an Epilog) to a vector graphics format (EPS, PostScript, PDF), then edit this now graphics material (change fonts, sizes, colors, words, move some of the text around) using Illustrator or similar. Doing the post-export editing is a breeze if all or most of the text strings in the exported material are in "sentence" format, i.e. appear as single text objects to Illustrator. In many cases, however, every character in the exported text seems to be sent as a separate object, making editing a pain at best, impossible at worst. Any ideas on how to export things so this doesn't happen?
