Clipping Paths Gone Missing - Adobe Indesign Macintosh

This has happened to two machines in our office so far. Used it one day, and it was gone the next! If anyone has ideas, please help!...

    THere's a bug in the latest version of Photoshop that removes paths from PDF files. Add a clipping apth to an image in Photoshop make it a clipping path, then save as PDF. Not only will there be no clipping path, the path will be gone from the file when you edit in Photoshop. Perhaps htis is what's hapenning? EPS works fine.

    EPS files are actually what we use. Not sure that's it. The clipping path menu item actually disappears from the InDesign object menu.

    Possibly a stupid question, but is "ClippingPathDialogFramwork" still enabled in the Adobe Plugins?

    Eric Good Question.

    look in the inDesign plugins folder > Graphics > and see if "Clipping Path Dialog.framework" is there. if not someone removed it.

    You do know you don't need clipping paths with ID?

    you can just place a layered PSD with a transparent background.

    We got the same problem on two computers. Problem was solved by trashing ID prefs : launch IDľnot in the Dock, in the Application folderľand press Apple-alt-ctrl-shift until you see the message about prefs.

    I had this problem- oddly enough, the clipping path function in IDCS reappeared one day after months of being gone. I was able to simply use the keyboard shortcut to adjust my clipping path settings, but after it reappeared, it disappeared again the next day and even the clipping path dialogue was completely missing from the entire system.
