Figures in a Mathematica 7.0 notebook

I have just began to look at Mathematica 7.0 and it is very impressive. 
When looking at some of the very interesting projects that have been 
posted at Wolfram's homepage, I thought it would be useful to 
copy-and-paste some of the figures from these notebooks into my teaching 
material. After several attempts from different notebooks and different 
figures I found that the right-edge of the figure often was not 
completely copied  (e.g. missing axis tic labels near the right edge) 
when pasting into Corel Draw X3. Note, I am running Mathematica 7.0 on a 
Windows Vista platform and the copy-and-paste operation did work ok when 
pasting into OpenOffice 3.0.0.

I then did some experimenting with exporting Mathematica 7-0 figures 
using different formats. I found the *.EPS format was the best (at least 
for importing them into Corel Draw) --- the text and figure quality was 
excellent with no detectable loss of information.

I hope that this information will be useful to others that may be 
working with Mathematica figures.
