Hi everyone -

I've just started using Word 2002 and Acrobat 5.0.5 (upgraded from Word
2000 and Acrobat 4.0) and I'm having a problem getting .EPS graphics
that I create to display in Word.

What I'm doing: I create a one-page document in Word, PDF the document,
and then save the PDF in Acrobat as an .EPS graphic (Save As > 'eps' >
Settings button > Language Level 1, ASCII, Include Preview). Note: In
Acrobat 4.0, you used the 'export' option to 'export' a PDF to EPS, but
now you use Save As instead, so that's different here.

When I save the .EPS and then try to insert it into another Word
document (using Insert > Picture > From File), the graphic is inserted,
but I can't see it. I can click on it but only the boundaries of it
display. When I print the Word document or PDF it, the picture IS
visible. Why can't I see it in Word? What's set incorrectly? (I do
not have 'Picture Placeholders' selected in Word.) This worked great
with Word 2000 and Acrobat 4.0 - I got really nice, crisp graphics.

Many thanks in advance...
