Click Properties, and click the PostScript folder tab.

8.
From the PostScript output format drop-down menu, choose Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) . (A warning will appear if you haven't selected Print to the following port: FILE, as described in steps 1–4, above.)

9.
Click OK, then click Print. In the Print To File dialog box, type a name for and choose a folder in which to save the output file in the File name field . If you want an extension, you must type it; none will be added automatically.

Reminder: Be sure to go back into Printer Settings and change the "Print to the following port" setting back to LPT1: (Printer Port) in order to print normally.

The Save Page as EPS command converts a QuarkXPress page into a single picture. There are a few reasons why you might need to do this. Your service provider or commercial printer might ask you to save a page as an EPS file in order to color separate it. Second, a file produced using this feature can be imported into another application, like Photoshop or Illustrator. And finally, you can use Save Page as EPS to create a resizable page-within-a-page.
