This could probably be fixed by using an inexpensive third party solution called Soxy. It also helps when you have different versions of the same application, and you want to choose which version to open a file in.
That's funny Steve, I had just sent them an email about their product after doing some more research. :-)
Are you familiar with it? Will it work from within InDesign? Their description of it sounded like it worked from Finder windows, etc. but didn't know if that carried over into ID or not.
To answer the question: yes, it will work from within InDesign. InDesign relies on the Finder or Explorer to open linked files, which in turn relies on Soxy to do it - so if you do 'Edit Original' on a link to a placed EPS file, Soxy will (by default) intervene and make sure the EPS opens in either Illustrator or Photoshop.
Yes, Kris, we actually downloaded the demo last week and it has been working well for us! Thanks for the follow-up and thanks Steve for the tip!
