Having read the posts on producing perfect graphs in R, or using 
inkscape to edit R graphics output, I have a related question.

Lately I am publishing in a journal that is very picky about their 
graphics formats. It is more efficient for me to get the final picky 
details of each graph done by our graphics department, who use Windows 
CorelDraw. The problem is that I have not yet been able to give them a 
vector graphics format that can be ungrouped in CorelDraw for editing. 
Bitmaps cannot be ungrouped <www.eatbywest.com/pub/vectorbitmap/>. The 
standard postscript that I am producing in R cannot be ungrouped either, 
and comes into CorelDraw looking fragmented. While I may be doing 
something odd in the production of my postscript files, they look fine 
elsewhere, and print well, so I don't think there is a problem.

Can anyone tell me how to produce vector graphics in R that can be 
ungrouped for editing in CorelDraw?
