Paul -

Sorry for the slow response, I get the TECHWR-L Digest.

I believe that there is an easy way to do this, but not being
familiar with Frame this may or not be real easy.

From the Windows 95 Start menu, select Settings -> Printers.
From the Printer window, select Add New Printer.
Install a PostScript printer (I use a HP 4M/4MV PostScript, but any
PostScript printer should do).
Follow installation wizard instructions.
Select the just installed printer.
Right click -> Properties.
Select PostScript tab.
Set PostScript output format to Encapsulated PostScript(EPS).
Select Details tab.
Set Connection type to FILE:
Apply and OK to Exit.

Print to this printer from Frame.

One caveat, you may need to print each page to a separate file as not
all applications can deal with a multi-page EPS file. Check with your
print shop.

Good sig {8^).
