Hi Lisa -
It sounds like you're running into the difference between a
and a bitmap operation. Postscript defines vectors, and thus
can scale nicely,
while the Gimp works on bitmaps. Which means that information
like line type
(e.g., dashed, dotted, etc.) isn't available to the Gimp.
Perhaps you should try importing the postscript into something
or another of the free vector editors. Maybe even xfig? I
haven't tried this,
and it may or may not work.
