David, is this a Windows GhostView feature?  I don't see any options like 
this in the *nix versions.  This is what you use to put postscript into 
Powerpoint and the like presentations, isn't it?  I've heard that in 
powerpoint, you can't see a preview of the postcript plot while you are 
constructing the presentation, and can only see it during full display.

Anyone have tricks to get the two to programs to work better together?  
(Thinking about thesis/job talks for next year... *sigh*)
