    Has this been fixed? I'm trying to place a xcel doc into IND 13.1 and I keep getting the same error. My IND is updated.

    I just updated and I'm having the issue with various files, but not all. Not sure what the diff is...some EPS, JPG, GIF and PNG.

    I was getting the same issue with exported .xlsx linking. Not a great solve, but I figured out that if I opened the .xlsx file and just saved it without making any changes, it was able to link...

    Same as Scott Boggs - CC is up to date and I receive an error when a numbers Sheet is exported to xlsx.

    I tried with both CC 2018 and CS6 and it still doesn't work. I keep getting the same message with both versions.

    Same problem here.
    EPS-files were created in Freehand and are still in use here...
    EPS-Files created in Illustrator cann be placed with import options showing and change the tif-preview to "change postscript to pixel" ( I am using the german version, so I do not know the engish translation".
    This solution is not working with Freehand EPS data because the error message shows up before getting into the import options...

    I can report the same issue with an older EPS file (that I cannot share with you unfortunately). It shows the same error message on multiple computers while InDesign CC 2017 doesn't have an issue with the file.
