Re: Exporting text to (or in) vector graphics as "sentences"?

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

| 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?
