A command in the File menu of the Picture window.
It saves the picture to an Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) file, which can be imported by many other programs, such as Microsoft® Word™.
With EPS files you can use high-quality graphics in your word-processor documents. The quality is higher than if you use Copy to clipboard.
To import an EPS file in Word, choose Insert → Picture → From file.... Word will create a picture with the same size as the originally selected part of the Picture window (the viewport).
(In Word versions from 2001 or older, Word will show you a screen preview in a mediocre quality, but you will see the high-quality PostScript version when you print.)
Though all the contents of the Picture window are written to the EPS file, only the part that you selected in the Picture window (the viewport) may become visible in Word (or another program).
The EPS picture is saved with the grey resolution and fonts that you specified with PostScript settings....
