I do not use the notebook menu commands to generate my EPS pictures because
I have experienced to many problems with it. I use, for instance


Export[nameOfTheEPSFile, plotToBeSaved, "EPS"]

which works just fine. nameOfTheEPSFile should be a string with a valid name
on whatever system you are using. On Windows, for instance, the command will

Export["c:\\mydocs\\myplot.eps", plotToBeSaved, "EPS"];

Be warned, as I have pointed out in this newsgroup before, what you see on
the screen is NOT exactly what you get in your EPS file. Furthermore, the
EPS file includes masks which do not of themselves cause problems for LaTeX,
but are responsible for some of the appearance differences.
