Hi,

 

Our server at work has been moved around which has really messed up a lot of InDesign files, especially our product catalogue. The images were in different folders, for example. D:\product_library\star_wars\images, D:\product_library\disney\images, but now with the server change all the links are invalid.

 

I know that if all the images were in one folder then InDesign would see that and relink them all in one go, but because they aren't it seems like the only option is to go through and relink all the images one by one.

 

Is there any way I can just tell InDesign that the only thing that has changed is the drive/server part of the link, and make it find them all again?

 

I hope that explanation was clear enough, I'm not an InDesign pro by any means.

You could try using symbolic links.

Thanks, I'll have a look into that. We'll need something that can work on macs but I'm sure there is an option out there.

 

If anyone is aware of a feature in InDesign that can do the job itself then that would be preferable.

Not exactly what you need to do but gives you a rough idea of how to achieve this using IDML ;)
