    Illustrator files sometimes have a white BG when placed in InDesign

      What determines if an Illustrator .ai file or Illustrator .eps file will have a white background when placed in InDesign? Usually when I place a .ai file, the background is white, and when I place a .eps file, the background is transparent. But I have noticed in other people's files that placed .ai files have a transparent background. In all cases, the placed file is pure vector. I would prefer that the background be transparent all the time, unless I give the object frame a while fill in InDesign.
