Hello everybody,

I use Mathematica 5.11 and CorelDraw 12 or X3 under Windows XP.

I have a plot consisting of a fit function and several data points,
which I want to import into a CorelDraw as an .eps file. To do so I use


Using gsview 4.7 to vies the eps gives the desired result. However,
when importing into CorelDraw (either ps interpreted in CorelDraw 12,
direct eps in X3), my data points are missing not only on the screen
but also on the printout (testing several printers), while being
displayed correctly in gsview.

Looking at the .eps file in a text editor I guess the command

/Mdot {
	0 0 rlineto
} bind def

is used to generate the data points, which are actually drawn using

1 0 0 r
.02 w
.19697 .02245 Mdot
.37013 .05902 Mdot
.54329 .12986 Mdot
.71645 .23772 Mdot
.88961 .38379 Mdot

I used ListPlot as well as Graphics[Point] to generate my data points,
both giving the same result in gsview and missing points in CorelDraw.

Is this a known problem and how can I circumvent this?

Thanks for giving support,
