Let me start off by saying I know nothing about Illustrator or Quark Express. My printer went out of business recently, but before he did, he gave me a copy of my logo on CD, in EPS format. He gave me two kinds: One that I cannot load, because it always tells me that I am missing "University Roman."
(Incidentally, if anyone wants to be nice and send me that font my e-mail is email@example.com - I have had no luck finding it at "font" websites.)
The other EPS file does in fact load up, with the University Font and everything, but I get the feeling that this is a "snapshot" kind of deal. I can't seem to "grab" and move the image parts, like on the one with the "replacement" font.
So anyway... A friend of mine, who is currently in Europe, allowed me access to his home where he has Quark 5.0 and Illustrator 10 installed on his PC.
Now I have to create an advertisement, with my logo, VERY SOON! The publisher will only accept EPS files. I either have to pay him to do it ($800), or just do this myself. Since I have a VERY limited budget, I cannot pay the guy $800. (Plus, I know what I want the ad to say, I just need to type the sucker.)
Okay, so here's my question:
I tried to open the snapshot EPS thing with Quark, and it said that it could not open files of that version. Whatever that means.
I basically need to plug this EPS graphic into something- Qwark, Word, Whatever- just so I can type out my ad's text underneath my logo and send it to the publisher.
Is there another program I could use? I could always download a demo of something else, just to get this thing done...
Sorry for the lengthy question. I just figured I would answer all of the potential queries in advance.
