BTW ... I downloaded your graphic. I am not all that familiar with
Draw, how do I go about finding out the dimensions of your drawing so
that I can compare its size to the EPS version?
The reference file file should look properly scaled when viewed in Draw.
You can see it correctly scaled by visiting the product page and looking
at the picture of the correctly scaled image as printed on the product:
It is when you "Export" the file using the "EPS" file-type and view the
EPS file with GIMP (and other viewers) that you can see that things are
scaled incorrectly. The first clue when viewing the EPS file: Look at
the model number, "990c". The "c" is overlapping the "0". It is not
supposed to overlap. I created two separate text boxes, one for the
"990" and one for the "c", so that I could control the spacing between
the main part number ("990") and the suffix ("c"), as well as use
different sizes for the text in each box. Somehow during the incorrect
scaling everything gets about 10% bigger and the "c" overlaps the "0" as
If you take the reference file and "Export as PDF", it should be
correctly scaled when viewed as a PDF (the "c" does not overlap the
"0"). So something is different between "Export as PDF", and "Export"
with the "EPS" file-type chosen. Yet both methods work OK in OpenOffice 3.3.
Let me know if you need further information or example files. But
comparing the results of ["Export as PDF"] and ["Export" with the "EPS"
file-type] should reveal that the EPS approach is not scaling things
