Hi, the FrontEnd split the strings for type setting inti individual characters. But only Export does this, use Display to export EPS and the strings will not split. Regards Jens "AES" <siegman at stanford.edu> schrieb im Newsbeitrag news:edqq99$ssk$1 at smc.vnet.net... | 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? |
