    You'd maybe want to show us a screenshot of the artwork and the layer panel.

     

    Why do you save as EPS?

    Your screenshot didn't come through. Essentially EPS is an old format which will always have a bounding box and background. If you want a file with a transparent background, you will have to save as a PDF 5 or above or rasterize the file as a Photoshop file, a PNG or a TIFF. All of these raster formats will loose the vector information.

    Well that is just completely erroneous infomation Larry. I have truckloads of EPS files that have 'no backgrounds' i.e. where there was no 'data' in the original, 'nothing' is written to the resultant postscript file, allowing it to be placed over an image/text/background etc. and have that image/text/background show through.
