My question is, why do you need it as EPS?
You might be trying to do something when there's a better way to do it.
The only time I saved a Q page as EPS is when I used to create headlines to bring into Photoshop for further playing around with. Quark's kerning is a pleasure compared to PS's, but PS got a little better so I stopped doing it.
I wonder if I still can, or whether that was an extension that I had?
