I've never seen this before, but InDesign 16.2.1 is treating all vector files as linked text.
So, if I place a vector file in .ai, .eps, or .pdf format it imports it as text.
And any file I open treats placed vector files in this way.
What can I do to fix this!?
what's your operating system?
If Mac OS, is your machine one of the new ones with the M1-chip?
This behavior is not normal.
Maybe it helps to trash InDesign cache and preferences:
Before you do this backup the Version 16.0 folders.
Or deinstall and reinstall InDesign.

Looks like someone just changed the file extension to .ai
It's probably a text file with a .txt or .rtf or .doc extension.
Can you open it in Illustrator?
