Using Barcode1.10 with InDesign CC 2019 (18.104.22.168) on MacOS 10.14.3 Having a problem with import of EPS files generated in Barcode.
InDesign allows placement of graphics in an image box via drag/drop or a "Place" command in the menu. If you have an image box selected (or drag into it) on the layout, the graphic will import into that. If no box is selected of an image is dragged onto a location with no box, the image will be imported into a new box.
EPS files generated in Barcode will not import into an empty image box. Attempting to do so via drag/drop or "place" will result in the barcode initially appearing in the box. Immediately thereafter, the cursor will change to an image of the barcode forcing it to be dropped into a new image box.
This only happens on empty image boxes. If the box already has an image in it, the new barcode will replace the existing image.
Images from other software packages import correctly. If I open the "Barcode" file in Illustrator and resave as an EPS file, it imports correctly. It is only EPS files generated by Barcode that exhibit the problem.
Any ideas of what could be causing this? Is Barcode creating some special type of EPS file? I have also reached out on the Adobe forums to see what ideas they might have.
Despite some workarounds, this problem is severely impacting my workflow. Any ideas would be appreciated.
