       So sorry you're having problems;

       My suggestion though would be to convert these .eps images to an
updated image,
          (1) before you discover these have allowed some hacker into your
          (2) to become more compatible with those to whom you transfer
data -
                 [Adobe is an old program, which even MsFt's software no
longer acknowledges as safe]
          (3) checking .eps on-line, I discovered no software - other than
converters - recognize this anymore.

       Hoping this helps,
          although I'm sorry it's not what you were hoping to hear,

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Impress can't handle eps images

Using LibreOffice under CentOS 7.x. Impress can't handle eps
images--output pdf contains only completely unreadable low res bitmaps. I
haven't tried Writer yet, but wouldn't be surprised if the same problem
happens. This is a huge fail, makes LO totally useless for me and many
others. Almost all of my writing is scientific/technical, and the graphics I
insert into documents are almost exclusively eps. I have written literally
hundreds of documents that contain thousands of eps figures. Converting
those to bitmaps is a non-starter, not least because of the inherent
limitations of bitmaps. This has been a known problem with LO since about
version 4.2, and several fixes and workarounds have been discussed but so
far nothing has been done that addresses users' needs. Users already have
their own projects and need software that works, not another project.
