I sorry. I find this basically incoherent.

Are you expecting us to have a copy of Illustrator and are willing to  
describe how you create a pdf or ps file? If so you should post a  
dataset (in R code using dput) and code. Many of us do not have such a  
resource but I cannot imagine understanding your complaint unless you  
do post further detail.
