"lipping path limit reached for TIFF Preview" error message - Adobe Illustrator Windows

Has anyone encounter the error, "Clipping path limit reached for TIFF Preview," when saving and Illustrator CD file as EPS? I've created a fairly simple poster (A2 size) with line art and text. Some of the line art was originally created on a Mac, using FreeHand 9.0. I open these files in Illustrator CS and select the elements I want, copy, and place them into the poster file. I've also used line art from Solid Works (DFX files) where I've opened the DFX file, made some line weight adjustments, copied and placed these into the poster file. Every time I ...

    Default "lipping path limit reached for TIFF Preview" error message

    Has anyone encounter the error, "Clipping path limit reached for TIFF Preview," when saving and Illustrator CD file as EPS? I've created a fairly simple poster (A2 size) with line art and text. Some of the line art was originally created on a Mac, using FreeHand 9.0. I open these files in Illustrator CS and select the elements I want, copy, and place them into the poster file. I've also used line art from Solid Works (DFX files) where I've opened the DFX file, made some line weight adjustments, copied and placed these into the poster file. Every time I save this file to EPS format, I get the above mentioned error message. The PDF that I create looks fine and prints to a desktop printer just fine. I'm worried that when we go to print, I might have some issues. Any help?

    Jan,

    Not something I have come across, but I suspect the paths imported from the
    DXF are probably very complicated with many anchor points. The message
    suggests that it will only affect the TIFF preview of the EPS, and if you
    have the full Acrobat and that can distil the .eps to a pdf file without
    problems (as opposed to saving as PDF from Illustrator), I would expect
    there to be no problems when going to print.

    What happens if you PLACE the EPS as linked in another Illustrator file?

    Simplifying the paths from the DXF would probably eliminate the problem.

    Thanks, Len, I'll try placing the EPS in another illustrator file (hadn't thought of that). I usually distill the EPS file and haven't noticed any degradation or problems with the resultant PDF so I wasn't too worried, but I don't want to have any problems when I go to print. The thought of simplifying the paths make my stomach turn, however! Thanks, again.
