EPS files
« on: July 29, 2011, 12:00:20 PM »
I had just reloaded a newer InkScape program and when I try to load a EPS file it doesn.t load but if I save it and then load it, it loads.

What is the problem.

Hi Bob, I didn't think you could open EPS files as that extension is not listed in file import.

Okay, curiosity got the better of me and I tried opening an EPS file in version 0.47 and version 0.48 and both fail.

I find EPS files are a bit different in another program I own. Some files import okay and other import as a square of coloured noise and are unusable.

My knowledge of Inkscape is limited to designing files for digital cutting machines and I am not good on the technical side. I would suggest you visit the main Inkscape forum http://www.inkscapeforum.com/ as programers and technical people help on the forum and I think they will be able to help answer your question.

If Kay or Heather see this post they may be able to help better as they have more knowledge of how Inkscape works.

Here is an Inkscape forum post on opening/saving file types.  http://www.inkscapeforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=820  
There is an older post on the Inkscape forum on this here.  http://www.inkscapeforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=797

It looks like there might be a plug-in for it, but I didn't read all of the posts.  I've used the Neevia converter to convert EPS to PDF.   http://convert.neevia.com/pdfconvert/

Thanks Heather.
I am going to bookmark neevia and I am sure I will use it often. PDF is so much easier to use than EPS. :D

A much belated answer!  But for anyone searching, here's the (much newer than this topic) FAQ from Inkscape website:  https://inkscape.org/en/learn/faq/?edit_off#How_to_open_EPS_files_in_Windows
