Claris Works 4 and PostScript

I need to be able to save files in the EPS format using Claris Works 4. I have a SW 2400, but I export my file to a number of different people who have a large variety of printers and also to a print shop. I need to be able to get PS quality from a ClarisWorks 4 document. Is this possible? I hope to do this in CW4 and not have to get a full-blown PageMaker-like program with its cost, as I got CW4 for its small footrpint DTP and now it looks like it's not up to the job. Thanks.

ClarisWorks is a QuickDraw-based application, which means it simply can't do a lot of the stuff PostScript can: for example, you have no choice over how vector-graphic lines end. Exporting your document as an EPSF won't help, here. ClarisWorks _can_ print PostScript text, however.

If you're looking for compatibility with print shops then you have several choices:

1) Use the LaserWriter 8.x driver to print to a file. This will generate an enormous text file which your print shop should be able to download to their output device. Disadvantage: you need to be connected to LaserWriter on an AppleTalk network to set up the driver at first.

2) Use Adobe's PSPrinter driver (http://www.adobe.com) which can do the same thing. Advantage: PSPrinter can set up a "virtual" printer without having to be connected to one.

3) Use the ClarisWorks Drawing page for your layout, save as PICT then use GraphicConverter 2.5.x <http://www.lemkesoft.pingnet.de/> to open  and re-save as EPSF. Be prepared to have plenty of RAM available if your document is large.
