Converting a Visio Image to EPS

Originally posted on //Safiqul//:

I fought for two days to understand the way of embedding eps image in latex. You cannot convert a image directly to eps from VISIO. At first, you need to convert it to PS (Post Script format). To do that you need to add a printer which can print a visio document to ps. To do it in windows 7, go to devices and printer and select add printer.

After that, Open Microsoft Visio and click print and the following window will pop up and select the printer and don’t forget to print on file and save the file as

After that you need a software that will convert the ps file to eps and you can do it with GSview. I faced the bounding box problem while converting the file to eps. To do that when you convert to eps, follow don’t forget to check it automatic…
