    Changing "file type" in Link Information Window (CS3)




      I am having a problem in Indesign (CS3), and I was wondering if anyone here might be able to help.


      I'm a student updating an older .INDD file for a 47 page book. The pages were all updated as .AI files, but for some reason

      3 of the pages in our InDesign document were assigned a .PDF "file type" in the Link Information window.  When I try and "Relink" to the updated .AI files,

      the program won't link to the .AI file. It will properly re-link to a .PDF version of the file.


      Is there a way to reset that "file type" in the Links Window from .PDF to .AI?


      Ultimately I can use .PDF versions for this, but I'd prefer to have them all .AI files.

      That would be cleaner and easier for the next students down the road who are going

      to inheriet this project.  It seems like this should be an easy thing to do, but I can't figure it out...


      Thank you very much for any information you can provide.  


      ¡Muchas gracias!
