We have recently upgraded our Adobe products from CS3 to CC. In CS3, images that were added to InDesign had the UNC path in the "Links". With CC, we are finding that the Mapped Path is in the "Links". This different behaviour is causing some issues.
Here is the process that we are using to add images to an InDesign file:
1. Open Bridge
2. Browse to a folder (X:\ which is mapped to \\Server\Hi-Res\)
3. Drag and drop an image from Bridge to InDesign
In CS3, a path of "X:\MyFolder\MyImage.tif" would get converted to \\Server\Hi-Res\MyFolder\MyImage.tif
In CC, the path remains as "X:\MyFolder\MyImage.tif" which is causing us some issues.
Is there a way, in InDesign CC, to tell the application to use UNC paths when a Link is created - similar to what we were experiencing with CS3?
In CS3, UNC paths were used in File Path for images but this behavior was changed in CS4 (most probably) and UNC paths are no more supported.
