Best Answer

Microsoft has identified a security issue with the use of EPS images within Office applications such as Excel. We will continue to work on an alternative to EPS images. Until then, IDAutomation recommends using ReturnType 1 to generate a BMP image or use ReturnType 3 for font text. Refer to:
