I'm on a mission of fixing a bad translated catalogue and I'm very new on Indesign tool. (like 2 days working on it)
I have all the files for the catalogue but I not feeling confortable on redoing the PDF by my own.
Can I just edit the wrong text parts, save it, and send back to the person who did the catalogue so he can export as PDF? It will keep all the links and original fonts if I skip the update links and find fonts warning?
That's correct (and you can't make the PDF with missing fonts or links). BUT, remember that yor corrections are happeing in a substitute font, so the text is going to flow differently and the line count may be significantly changed when the correct font is used. You can't actually see what is happening unless you have the fonts.
