Greetings,
When I export an AI CS 2 project to and EPS one of the layer bounding boxes clips the extent.

Here is a screen shot.

How do I move the bounding box without resizing the layer so I can include the full extent in the EPS?

Thanks,
-Mike

If you put a box with no stroke and no fill around the exact extent that you want for your EPS, and no other items outside the box. It should export to the size of that box.

This seemed like a logical fix - but it did not work.

I have to get this file to the printer by next Monday. Yikes!
Thanks,

You may want to post the file for someone to look at.

Otherwise you need to find the object(s) / layer(s) that is causing the problem.

The way I do that is by exporting half the layers at a time and trying to isolate what layer is causing the problem.

Shouldn't be too hard to find.

I took the project to the GIS Tech Center for printing on their plotter yesterday.
They generated an EPS from AI CS2 and it opened without any clipping in Pshop 8.
I am using Pshop 7.

The EPS printed from Pshop 8 better than directly from AI CS2

The EPs looks fine when opened in AI CS 2.

So, it looks as if it may be a software compatibility problem.
But I will try exporting half the layers at a time and see what happens

Thanks for the help.

Which file? The AI file? The EPS?

The AI file is 12 meg and EPS is 23 meg.
