    file opens a window and a transform box with handles appear at the appropriate
    size but nothing is in it. I don't understand.

    You've got it pretty well down I think. Freehand can't rip EPS files. If
    you have Illustrator you can open the EPS with in that program and then
    export it back to Freehand. Or if you have Acrobat Distiller you can
    convert the EPS to a PDF which Freehand can open. If you have Mac OS X
    then I think you might be able to open the EPS with Preview and export
    it as a PDF but I haven't tried that out myself. I'll have to give that
    a try when I get a moment.

    You can download a Jaws PDF Creator trial to convert EPS files into Freehand-readable PDF. The trial generates a watermark over the top of your artwork, but the watermark is just an editable vector object.

    I am curious. What program originally created the EPS file? Have you opened
    the EPS in a text editor and looked at the header of the file?

    In my experience when you open an EPS file in FreeHand and it just gives you
    the bounding box, it sometimes means that the program that generated the EPS
    file did not make the preview for the file. For example when you create an EPS
    from Photoshop you have a choice to save with a Tif preview or no preview.
