Hi wayne gulliver,

if you're on Windows, this FAQ item may help you solve your issue:
https://inkscape.org/learn/faq/#how-open-eps-files-windows

As a rule of thumb, it is recommended to always use 'Save as...' -> 'Inkscape SVG', and to export to other file formats by using 'Save a copy...' .

Any file format conversion will inevitably lose data, as every file format only supports a specific subset of features. So, if you do not want to lose data, always save as Inkscape SVG, and export using the Save a copy function.

Kind Regards,
 Maren
