Description John W. Lockhart 2005-06-16 18:05:29 UTC
Description of problem:
Graphics can only be exported as full-page PDF, but
many applications require BoundingBoxes that match
the size of the text/graphics.  Encapsulated PostScript
would be a good way to do this.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Choose the "Export..." menu item and choose from PDF or nothing :)
Actual results:
Reconstructing the graphics in "dia" for the OLS Proceedings,
and wasting a lot of time in the process.

Expected results:
Smooth EPS export suitable for inclusion in latex, pdflatex, or
other programs that expect encapsulated structured graphics
formats.  If there's a way to easily do this already, alas, I haven't
figured it out yet :-(

Draw has this.

Edit->Select All, File->Export..., 
in < 1.0.8 Browse for other folders, and select EPS from the filter list. 
in >= 1.0.8 Optionally use File type, and select EPS from the file type list.
