I ran into this problem a few months ago. According to Adobe support,
this problem occurs with several types of graphics formats, and is a bug
that the company is well aware of. I was told that, after importing a
graphic, I should save the file (I renamed it, just to be safe), then close and
reopen it. When I did--lo!--the graphic appeared and printed properly.

Once or twice since, the same graphics have reverted to gray boxes, but
closing and reopening the file always seems to work for me.
