Hi all - problems with anno coming out of Arcmap to eps for placing in InDesign.

When exporting eps’s from Arcmap some elements on Anno layers are coming out with glyphs substituted and glyph position stacked (ie negative kerning).

Glyph replacement seems to be consistant but position isn’t always exactly the same but is similar across a range of machines (see attached files).

From what I can see all attributes are the same where they should be and as said it looks fine on screen in ArcMap, when zoomed out to a full page three machines show the problem anno as grey (the machine that doesn’t has its display setting set at a much higher res though)

Have all files on an ftp site if anyone has the inclination to have a look.


Cheers.

From my experience the EPS export out of ArcMap is really weak. For placing into Indesign I recommend you export out to AI. Then in Illustrator convert the fonts to outlines. Then place the AI file into Indesign. This process works great for me all the time.

Here is some interesting information on the EPS file format:
