Exporting from Adobe InDesign 2.01ME to EPS

I have a page containing Arabic text in Adobe InDesign 2.01ME. When I export the page to EPS then open the new file in Illustrator 9, I get a blank page. If the page has a mixture of Arabic and English, I get only the English text. What gives? Can someone guide me to what settings I need to adjust? Thank you.

Try exporting as PDF with all fonts embedded Feb 10, 2003

Hi, Fuad. I have no direct experience with files with Arabic fonts, but you might want to try exporting from ID as PDF, with all fonts embedded (not subsetted).

You can then open the PDF in Illustrator.

(but why do you need to open the page in AI? editing is much easier in ID.)

Finally found out how to do it Aug 15, 2003

Before exporting to EPS, go to the Type menu and select "Creat Outlines."

That should take care of it.

Thanks to all.
