Re: [xep-support] XEP not reading EPS graphics

Hello, Balazs,

Do not remove embedded TIFF file from EPS file. These embedded bitmaps
are what XEP reads from EPS and puts to PDF. XEP does not _create_
bitmaps out of EPS.

The Reference states ("5.2.3. EPS",
        "EPS images are supported in PostScript generator only. In the PDF
generation module, they are replaced by a bitmap preview image (EPSI or
TIFF) if available; otherwise, the correspondent area is left blank."

Best regards,
  Michael Sulyaev
