    [Please Help] Illustrator and Transparency

    Here is my situation: I am making a graphic logo using Illustrator 10, exporting as and eps file and then placing it in indesign. However I need the backround to be transparent, not white. Does anyone know how to to make the backround transparent in Illustrator and preserve it through eps into indesign?

    Is the logo built totally in Illustrator?........no placed images or anything?........the reason I ask is because I just tried it and it worked for me with no white background.

    When you saved the file as eps, there is a pop-up pref window comes up before you save the file..........what are those settings on your eps file?

    No placed images, I made it from scartch in illustrator. I dont have Illustrator and Indesign here but what settings did you use for your eps? Also, are there settings in illustrator to make the backround transparent (I'm not very familiar with illustrator) ?

    Did you do something in illustrator itself before you saved in eps such as modify transparency or something?

    No, I think you should be OK.........I would give it try first to see how it responds.
