I just tried this myself with some shapefiles in Gauss-Krüger coordinates (the data from http://frida.intevation.org/), and I couldn't find any problem with postscript export.

Could it be that you imported some of your data with the "import as is" check box?  With that option, data in Gauss-Krüger will show up far outside the page and it may look like nothing happened.  It will lead to a bounding box like the one you get if you also have objects that are near the lower left corner of the page.

Could you send me the .sk file in question?

I am using skencil with the GeoObject add-on together with
Shape files on linux SuSe 8.1.

I try to export to Postscript (Save as Postscript) which seems to be EPS. All is fine, but I cannot open the exported file with other graphic programs as gimp or display or xv

This is the original header, created by skencil. 

%!PS-Adobe-3.0 EPSF-3.0
%%For: Otto Dassau
%%CreationDate: Tue Apr  6 12:42:35 2004
%%Title: Karte_landnutzung_alt.ps
%%Creator: Skencil 0.6.16
%%Pages: 1
%%BoundingBox: -6 0 3545646 5785086
%%Extensions: CMYK
%%DocumentSuppliedResources: (atend)
%%DocumentNeededResources: font NimbusSanL-Bold
%%DocumentNeededResources: font NimbusSanL-BoldCond

When I change the line parameter for BoundingBox:

(original with Gauß-Krueger coordinates)
%%BoundingBox: -6 0 3545646 5785086

to the 'real' pixel amount and also change the order,
which means changing manually from portrait to landscape
it works.
%%BoundingBox: -6 0 595 842

To handle ps outputs using the GeoObject add-on like this doesn't seem to be very elegant. It would be nice, if the %%BoundingBox: could be adapted, so other graphic programs can read and edit the Postscript files.

  thanks for you help
