Convert old graphic documents into an editable form
Authored by: Beernd on Feb 22, '03 06:17:43PM

I use this method a lot to overcome the problem of authors sending their figures pasted in a Word file, even though I always ask them explicitly not to... I had a hard time getting the figures out of the Word files until I thought of this method. I just print to postscript in Word and open it in Illustrator. (Printing to PDF often gives mutilated pictures, with very fat lines.) I use the method for Powerpoint files as well. And of course, it should work for any programme.
