Does it much matter what you select for "Object Type" when you add and name something to an InDesign library?
Sometimes the name ID Picks for a new library item relates to one of the file types of an element being added to a library.. I don't know whether it actually matters to get the Type right in the eyes of InDesign, or whether that's just for human eyes.
Thoughts/wisdom on this?
Can't say that I've ever used it, but my guess is it's there to help manage/navigate libraries containing a lot of items. "Type" is used in "Sort Items" and "Show Subset" in the flyout on the library panel.
Thank you, Mary..that's about what I was theorizing..I'm working a project right now with a library where I thought, "Oh, I'll just toss a few things in here.."
I'm 1/3 through, and have about 50 things, with probably many more to come..
thanks for helping
