Today I learned that EPS file formats have been unsupported in Office applications as of April 11, 2017. I don’t often have a need to embed EPS files in my documents, but I do live with a designer and he loves to send EPS files for various family-related side projects. As a Mac user, it’s not an issue for him, as Office 2011 and Office 2016 for Mac is not affected by this change.

Meanwhile, I’ll go ask for some JPEGs.
