Thanks, I have managed to download that update. I'm sorry to cause you so much trouble, but unfortunately, I think there's a problem with the update. It doesn't seem to completely solve the problem of the missing numbers from the eps coded solution. I couldn't work out why at first, it seemed to save it ok sometimes but not others. I've been running tests, and I think that it will only save the correct coded solution eps if that is the first and only kind of eps you choose to save after opening Crossword Compiler. If you save only coded solutions, it works fine. However, if you save a puzzle or solution, then no coded solution will save correctly afterwards, unless you quit the program and reopen it. I know that sounds strange, and it may be something I'm doing wrong. Would you mind checking to see if it does the same for you?
I really appreciate all your help with this. I mentioned before that I had the pressure of a deadline, but I've found a way to use the "general (font embedding)" eps option for the coded solutions temporarily, so I can use them for now. It'd be useful if you could solve the basic eps problem at some point, but I don't want to demand all your time, so whenever suits you!
