How to Convert MS Word File to EPS (5 Steps)

By Greyson Ferguson

Microsoft Word files are commonly saved as ".doc" documents (some Word versions save the document as ".docx"). Although many different programs have the capability of opening a .doc (or .docx) file, there are some programs that cannot run the specific file. If you want to use your .doc (.docx) file with a postscript-editing software you need to convert the file. A postscript file notation is ".eps," however there are a few different .doc conversion programs available that posses the capabilities of converting the .doc or .docx to an .eps.

Step 1

Launch your internet browser and navigate to a site (see Resources) that offers file conversion software. These programs can convert a variety of different program files, including Microsoft Word .doc files to .eps files.

Step 2

Download the software by selecting the download link. Launch the downloaded file and follow the prompts to complete the installation.

Step 3

Launch the installed document converter. Click "File > Open" and select the specific .doc file you want to convert.

Step 4

Select ".eps" as the output format from the pull-down menu on the screen. Choose your output location by clicking the "Browse" button next to the output location menu towards the bottom of the screen.

Click "Convert" and the Microsoft Word .doc file will convert over to .eps.
