After you place a Photoshop EPS into your InDesign document, and apply a Photoshop path in the Clipping Path Options dialog box, manually relinking that image to the same source, or another copy, or using the Edit Original command and modifying the image, causes the clipping path's masking to fail to appear in the page display. Other file formats which are treated as Photoshop EPS files, such as certain EPS based OPI proxy files, will demonstrate the same issue.
