Vector Graphics Program Needed

I currently use QCAD to draw diagrams etc. I have tried a few different CAD programs, but none are as good IMO. The one problem is that it cannot export directly to EPS. It can print to file as a PS, but the borders are all wrong, which is no good when inserting into LaTeX, which is what I use them with.
Does anyone know of a vector graphics editor which can import either PS, EPS or DXF files, and export to EPS? It would not need to be very advanced, all it would need to be able to do would be to crop images.
I did email the developer of QCAD, who said:
- create a PS file with the print to file option
- use
$ ps2epsi file.eps
to convert the ps file into an eps file without border
But I tried this and it did not work properly (the border was not removed). Is there another way of doing this with some similar command?
Any help would be much appreciated
