I am running Photoshop Elements 10 Pro on Mac OS-10.9. When I read in an eps file with Greek letters, they do not open properly. I get a small box instead of the letter.

That means that the given font doesn't contain the glyph you specified, and the font's "no such glyph" figure is used instead.

Some applications automatically substitute other fonts when they can't find a glyph in the specified font. But Adobe apps try not to use such misleading and error prone substitutions.

All right. So how do I fix it? I can't publish a graph with a box in place of the Greek letter that's supposed to label its axis. Can I cut out the box somehow and substitute a Symbol letter from the PSE font list? How do I change my PSE prefs to allow it to substitute? A misleading and error prone substitution would be better than a box. Surely I don't have to go back to OS 10.7, or do I?

You need to change the EPS file to use fonts that actually contain the glyphs you need, or replace the glyphs with text in PSE.

You can't change the rasterization - it won't do substitutions.
