Export EPS from PowerPoint

You can't export EPS from PowerPoint, but ...

If you have Adobe Acrobat
That's Acrobat, the full package, not just the free Reader. If that's what you've got, you've got it made.

Make a PDF from your PowerPoint presentation, open the PDF in Acrobat, then export the page you want to EPS, choosing the preview image, PS level and font embedding options you'd like.

If you don't have Acrobat
Some PostScript drivers allow you to choose EPS as the output format. Whether your driver supports this will depend on the driver and the version of Windows you use.

Then start PowerPoint.

Did it work?

Import your new EPS file into any app that supports placing EPS and see the results on screen in ... um ... glorious living grey rectangle. The driver doesn't create a preview image for the EPS, just the PostScript part. This is perfectly valid and should print fine to a PostScript printer, but it's a little unnerving if you expected to like SEE something when you imported the file.

And to a non-PostScript printer? You get the grey rectangle. Again, this is normal. Not what you might want, perhaps, but normal. Don't use EPS graphics if you're not printing to PostScript printers.
