I have a 'placed' file used in many other files (a footer for example). I edit the footer and need to update and reprint all the files that 'footer' is used in. I don't remember all the files it's used in, there are a lot and they are everywhere.is there an easy way to find and list them all?
I don't know what platform you run, but there are some 3rd-party file search utilities that are capable of reading the metadata of .indd files. I run Windows and use Agent Ransack; the free version of File Locator Pro. To do what you need, I put *.indd in the Name: field, and the file name of my commonly-linked file in the Containing Text: field. Works beautifully.
