Exporting an EPS from IndesignCS2... - Adobe Indesign Macintosh

Ever since I changed from a MacG4 using ID 2.0 to a MacPro using IDCS2 (OSX10.4.8), I have been unable to export an eps from indesign and open it in Illustrator. Firstly, it takes way longer for the eps to be created in ID (than it used to on the G4, ID2.0) and when I try to open it, illustrator says that it "does not recognize the file format". Does anyone know why this would be and if it's a setting that I need to change? Thanks....

    Illustrator is not a general purpose EPS editor unless the EPS was
    actually created by Illustrator.

    If you want an Illustrator file, then use Illustrator to create it.

    What exactly are you trying to accomplish? Perhaps you can be pointed in
    a better direction.

    I'm creating a doent in IDCS2 and submitting it to press as an EPS. Then, they open it in Illustrator to do their prepress stuff with it. What you said makes sense however, it USED to be okay with the previous version of ID and now we're stumped!

    natalina, I work in prepress, and I've just got to say the workflow you described is wacky. The only worse thing they could do would be to place the EPS files they hacked into Quark.

    I urge you to start interviewing other printers who've kept up with the times.

    Based on the description of their workflow, I have to ask if it's
    possible for you to use another printer?

    If not, then try exporting a PDF and creating an EPS from Acrobat. I've
    had pretty good success doing that in a pinch.

    Is this in Japan? I remember an earlier posting in which we were told Illustrator is the preferred format for printers in Japan. If that were the case, I wouldn't get anything printed in Japan.

    I have had a printer I was using briefly for bus cds who only accepted TIF files. It worked for what it was but when the guy called me one day and said, "stop sending PDFs, they're crap" I went elsewhere.
