    InDesign CC export EPS Problem

    동후김83505835 Level 1

      I had the export eps from indesign CC.

      It had a run in adobe illustrator.

      However it's different from the indd file.

      It seems sort by center group that tied the page item.

      In addition, the size of the document is the default document size of adobe illustrator.

      what is the reason?

          InDesigns export to EPS is only there as a legacy workflow for systems that have not caught up yet.

           

          InDesign's export to EPS is intended to be an output only file, meaning that it should never be opened in another program.

           

          Finally, EPS is a much older file system that Adobe is supporting for legacy workflows, you're much better off with a PDF.

           

          Even so - PDFs should never be opened in Illustrator, unless created in Illustrator and saved with editing abilities for Illustrator.

           

           

          Basically, if you need a file done in Illustrator then create it in Illustrator. Opening EPS files and PDF files created with InDesign in Illustrator will always be a crapshoot.

           

          Create it in InDesign and export to PDF.

           

          Or create it in Illustrator and save it as a .ai file with PDF compatible.
