Am I right in thinking that Place and Link does exactly the same thing as the Content Collector does if you check the create link box on the content collector panel? I've done some testing of this, and I'm not seeing any difference. In which case, wouldn't it makee the Place and Link in the menu rededunant?
It does the same. There is a lot of redundance. Specially if people are used to work with it as it was in previous versions. This command was similiar introduced in CS5, the content tools in CS6.
Thanks. I'm so glad you agree :-)
Redundancy is a hallmark of InDesign. It allows users to work in the ways they find most comfortable for themselves. It's a strength, not a weakness, of the program.
