Illustrator CS3 - How can I remove a "linked" image???

Jan 23, 2009 9:11 AM

I have an illy file that has several "linked" images.

Some of these I wanted to keep and have embedded.

However, I would like to delete two in particular...which the images are no longer available or desired. But I see no way to do this.

I have tried to go to outline mode/wireframe view... and there are no boxes indicating where these images should go...so I can't delete those.

The two images that Illy keeps asking for when I open the file have a red ? to the right of the image names.

How can I permanently get rid of these?

Thanks.

    Select image, delete. You can go to the image (which means select it and scroll to its position) using the Links palette.

    Click on the link in the links pallette. At the bottom of the links pallette there is a button that says "go to link", click that. That will show the picture in the document, then you can hit the 'delete' key.

    AI CS5. I have sometimes have missing images that do not show themselves this method. Usually a complex file with a lot of layers. Have made sure all layers are unlocked, but still cannot find the offending image. AI will nag me on every open to replace this image.

    I often experience the same. I have hundreds if not thousands of layers in my AI file. Clicking the red X on the link when I filter by Missing Links does nothing. "Go to link" does nothing.

     

    Has anyone found a solution to this?
