    InDesign preflight throws an error on 2-color eps art


      Greetings! Here's my issue:


      Had a 2-color job open in INDY CC2017, ran a preflight that allows for spot and black only, and it flagged some of the placed eps files as containing C, M, and Y colors. I opened the eps’s to correct and didn’t find any violations. When the artist told me that they had created PDFs of their 2-color art and they separated fine, I tried placing the PDFs. I then ran my preflight, and the same artwork passed as 2-color.  Any ideas what is going on there?


      I'm prepared to share the INDY file and my preflight 2-color preset if needed.

      Thanks for any help! Rusty.
