Sib. 7.5: EPS files clipped
Posted by RDill - 03 Mar 11:29AM
A batch of EPS files I have exported from Sib are clipped. The Title text is very slightly cut off at top. This is despite the fact that the titles are placed a bit lower down the page than the programme's default position.

Can anyone explain/solve this issue.

Thanks

How are you observing this clipping? What application is reading the EPS file that was produced by Sibelius?

The EPS support in all versions of Sibelius later than version 6.2 is pretty poor: many applications are unable to read the PostScript correctly, and fall back to the embedded TIFF rasterised version (thus destroying the point of the scalable EPS format).

If you are looking for good scalable-vector export from Sibelius, you might investigate graphics export in PDF format.

Or, export the Sibelius score back to Sibelius 6 format, and perform the EPS graphics exports from Sibelius 6.2.

Thanks Robin.
Some very helpful suggestions.
I have managed to solve my immediate issue by unticking the 'Use smallest bounding box' tickbox.
