Books are divided into files for two reasons in my world. If there is very heavy use of graphics, the single file approach becomes unworkable because file file bogs down. Another reason is to divide up the document into chucks that the various SMEs can work on without locking everyone else out

It's still a cross reference to that element in the last file in the book. So the key thing is to build the cross ref target correctly and then reference it on all the master pages that you want it to appear on. Craig From: Framers

Adobe Illustrator will open eps easily and allow you to save as a variety of formats. Best to save as .ai to have a good source file to work with, but your target file can be any number of things. It's easiest if you stay with the same source/target (you can't "lose" the source then). Craig
