On the old computer open the files and use File > Package...
You'll have to install the missing fonts on the new computer, but they'll be included in the packages. Copy the packages to the hard drive -- don't try to work from the flash drive.
Thank you so much. I tried it on the first one and it appears to do the trick. I'm sure the others will also. I figured there had to be an easier way than relinking everything. I am so happy. Yipee!
Thankful for the quick reply.
Apart from that what Peter said: If the name of the internal HD and the names of the file/folder structure would be the same on both computers, it should work without packaging…
Just an idea…
But I think I'm a little late with that ;-)
Thanks for the tip.
I was thinking the same thing and wanted to try that. When I set up my new Mac I used the default setting and it was different than the account/user name on my older Mac. I went to the Mac Store to see if someone could help me change that name to match my old one. The first guy didn't know how, and made me an appoint with a "genius". That guy didn't think I should try to change the name, it was supposed to be perminant. I guess it could be done but they didn't recommend that. Neither of them were familiar with InDesign. I could have solved the problem easy on the initial set up if I knew the ramifications for using the default. I do believe I may have had to keep that file on the desktop though, since that was my old location I was linked to.
Thanks again for your input.
