Well, I agree that there's a learning curve, but that's true for all
plotting/illustration programs I've used. What I found, though, is
that the learning is rewarded much more in Mma: once one figures out
how to make the plots look good, any number of them can be generated
entirely automatically from any number of datasets. Reporting on new
experiments then becomes a joy rather than a chore.

Select the graphic and "Print Selection" to an EPSF file.
