While for embeding eps files in word, I've just tried that. MS word
2007 seems to have some problem on this. See the attached eps
file produced from matplotlib. In MS word 2007, the labels
and titles of axes are gone, even on the printed version of
the word file. It's there when I view/print it with gsview.
I don't have Word 2007, but I imported your file into Word 2003 and saw that
the titles and labels were missing. I would blame that on shortcomings of the
Word PS engine. When I printed to a non-PostScript printer, the titles and
labels were missing as in your test; that doesn't surprise me, because the
Word PS engine would be used to render for a non-PS printer. However, when I
printed to PostScript devices (the Adobe PDF driver and the PDFCreator
driver), the titles and text were present; Word shouldn't invoke its PS engine
when the printer understands PS. Is there any chance that you were using a
non-PS printer, or that your printer has two or more modes (like the
Hewlett-Packard models that automatically switch between PCL and PS) and you
were not using a PS driver? How about testing with PDFCreator?
I'm not sure if my printer supports PS or not, it's Dell Laser 1320c,
I couldn't find any information from its property page.
I'm afraid that I'm giving up matplotlib for my paper plotting, since
my professor wants me to do plotting with excel such that he doesn't
have to ask me to do every small change on the plot if he could do it
