I have made two test files with the kind of EPS images I work with. I put the
test together with OOo in the ODT document and then printed a PDF file of
that document with CUPS-PDF; I hope I managed to upload and attach them here
properly. With the files I want to show my problem and that is the poor
quality of the EPS images in the ODT document. The resulting PDF file is on
the contrary very good; it is e.g. better than if I had made the original
document in DOC format in Microsoft Word. But the ODT file that I work with
when writing my texts and books has such poor EPS illustrations that I
cannot rely on them for quick controls of what they contain.


Post the eps file that you used.

I wonder just what version of MS Word you are using that does such a
better job. Certainly not MSO Word 2003 as importing an eps into that
results in the same as OOo 3.3 or LO 3.3.

I did several tests using a .ps file from
and converted the file to eps using Scribus. Of course the print to pdf
renders the converted .eps just fine. The MSO Word 2003 file didn't
render the eps any better than OOo or LO. If you'd like to explore
further then I suggest (again) that you start a new thread over on the
users list as that's a better list to troubleshoot things like this.
Further, if you do so I'll be happy to swap screenshots as well.
