To save a graphic cell as an encapsulated postscript file in MMA 2.2.3 for windows the graphic (a box appears around it)
2.Pull down the FILE menu
3.Select EXPORT
4.under file type choose 'encapsulated postscript .eps' (other types are available)
5.set a file name of your choosing (?.eps)
6.Click on OK

I hope this works for you.

In my experience postscript files or windows metafiles (*.wmf) have proven easier to 
import in word processor or graphics programs, but encapsulated postscript may be 
better for your application. If they don't act as you think they should, try another 

Good luck.
