Graphic designer and I are trying to figure out how to zip an .eps or .pdf file (from Quark) for outlook. Any ideas? HELP!

right click- send to - zip folder?
Not an option according to the graphic designer. :(

thats all i got! sorry about that.
Thanks for responding. We have kind of sort of an answer but I may be taking a drive over to the magazine offices.
I assume you need to zip the file because the file is too big compared to what your (or their) e-mail system allows. See if they have an FTP server you can just upload the .eps or .pdf file to without first zipping it. That's how most every publishing place I've ever worked with handled such files. (It's not unusual for even compressed files to be way too big for e-mail.)

Lex you should just be able to save the files to a folder and then either using Windows XP's built in functionality or a free utility like WinZip to zip the files up. I am hoping that you are doing it for security or policy considerations and not for compression (to save space) because you usually won't get much compression since EPS and PDF usually are pretty compresseed binary formats as it is. www.winzip.com if you don't have XP but are using a windows system. If you're using a Mac system I'd have to ask our mac person because i don't rightly know off the tip of my head how to compress and dont have a mac i can play with. :p
File>Export>Layout as PDF
If you're sending as a proof, you can reduce the DPI by hitting options in the save dialouge. That should be small enough to send as an attachment

^ dang. beat me to it.
(Quark is evil, BTW)
Thank you to everyone who responded. Co-worker said something about an FTP and it not being there. We did download Winzip and the file was still too large. I wound up taking a CD to their offices. I agree....Quark is evil. I hadn't heard of the program before working here and though co-worker has experience on it, he's had all sorts of problems from installation on.

Dang...definitely not the quarks I was thinking of. Not "charm"-ing at all.
