Currently OOW supports eps files, but regular ps or epsi files are not 
recognized. It would be really useful if I could create regular postscript 
file and insert this to OOW directly without manually converting to eps.

Is there already an Enhancement issue which handles import filter of PS or EPSI
Comment 2 macias 2008-05-13 14:27:10 UTC
I found one similar report, but it was about problem with EPS. And I am 
talking about even missing the filter (in insert file dialog) *.ps or *.epsi.

Maybe i66523 would do?
Comment 4 michael.ruess 2008-05-14 08:06:12 UTC
I think, not fully. This is also about importing these formats.
Reassigned to requirements.

The problem here is that the EPSI files exist (and are I believe completely
compatible with normal EPS files, but then contain an embedded bitmap thumbnail)
but aren't recognised or selectable using the current filename import filters.

EPSI files are produced by Linux file conversion scripts like ps2epsi, so it's
common enough that people will have these files.

eps, ps and epsi are all postscript files, so if OOo can "handle" (as in "accept and print") eps, I doubt it won't work with ps or epsi. This is really just a matter of allowing the user to pick the said files.

Now, even if postscript works, it will probably be possible to make a file that doesn't work and screws the rest of the document when printing (eps* files are supposed to obey some restrictions, to avoid affecting the postscript document they're inserted in).
