EclipseCrossword 1.2.57 bug: EPS files don't work if created in certain regions

EclipseCrossword 1.2.57 has a bug where if you create an EPS file on a computer with its regional settings set to an area where the comma is used as a decimal separator, that EPS file won't load correctly in other programs.  This bug is fixed in current versions of EclipseCrossword.  We recommend that you upgrade to the latest version.  If that's not possible, here is another workaround that you can use instead.

These instructions are for Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows Vista.  They'll be slightly different for extremely old versions of Windows.

Technical notes

The specific problem is that the scalefont directive near the bottom of the file improperly uses your computer's regional settings, but EPS files only support periods for decimals.  For example, it might look like this:

/Times-Roman findfont
9,3 scalefont

If you use a text editor to change the number before scalefont to use a period instead of a comma (such as "9.3") then the EPS file should load correctly.
