Subject:Re: How to edit/print .ps files From:Max Wyss <prodok -at- PRODOK -dot- CH> Date:Wed, 8 Oct 1997 08:15:03 GMT
one way to handle that PS file is to process it with Acrobat Distiller to
create a PDF file, and then to open it in Adobe Illustrator (version 5.5 or
higher). There, you can clean it up and save it as EPS.
Hope, this can help.
