You should be able to use the "Relink to Folder" command from the Links panel menu, but there'se something really broken in the workflow here, I think.
If the publisher thinks you need the links, they should be packaging the file and updating the links in the package when they do it. ID should then find them automatically (in fact, if the links are in the folder or subfolder withthe ID file, thay should be found even if they are not updated to point to that folder if they are not in the location specified in the file).
More importanly though, if you are adding content, not working with the links, why does it matter to you that they are missing or out of date?
@ Kasyan, the script you linked above is what I am looking for, too – unfortunately for Mac. I found your Java script "Change Paths of Links" < http://forums.adobe.com/message/3596234 > but this script needs a file name to work; if I try to find/replace a folder path or even volume path only it says: "Nothing has been relinked".
So I wonder if you would have a merge of those two scripts: the functionality to change a path partially (without file name) combined with the ability to enter a path text (instead of single volume letters for windows).
Additionally it would need to change the path ONLY for those files which are marked as missing in InDesigns links panel – otherwise even NOT-missed files with f.i. same server name will get missed after running the script.
In our workflow it happens that the IT dept. moves some particular projekt folders to an archiv server – whereas most folders stay at their place. That means that some links in InDesign still work while others from this same server don't work anymore.
Thanks a lot in advance!
