I am exporting my ChemDraw files as eps because I have placed markers which are getting substituted with a labeling system inside LaTeX. In order to have same fonts, I installed the latex-font Computer Modern on my Windows system, and ChemDraw recognizes it. However, exporting the file as eps somehow changes the font (to Times Roman I think).

I have read that it might be that certain programs just support a small number of fonts when it comes to eps.

Has anyone a suggestion of how I can get my desired font into the eps (and keeping the markers I placed)?

There are some fonts that are not supported on Windows when exporting to EPS. In fact in some cases opening the EPS file in Illustrator may even give you an error stating the certain font is missing.

This behavior does not seem to happen in the Mac version of the software.

Our developers are already aware of this and we hope to have it fix in a future release of the software.
