i have the following situation:
The InDesign Files are created from Windows-InDesignServer via a Plugin for automation.
All the clients work with a Mac. When they want to open a file, the plugin copies the file from the network drive to a local folder and opens the copy.
But this way, all the links to the images get lost.
Windows - link of the initial file:
Mac - path that's shown in the indesign-palette:
The interesting thing is, if i open the file on the network drive, InDesign on Mac is able to find the links via the Windows-Pathes.
But as soon as i copy it locally, the links are missing.
Is there any functionality to store both Windows- and Mac-Pathes in the link?
Or a Url-Pattern that works for both platforms?
Thanks in advance!
Writing a script would have been my advice. Since you already did it, your fine. I don't see it as «workaround».

Creating a symbolic link in the root-directory did the trick:
ln -s /Volumes/Data/ myNetworkDrive
This way, the NetworkDrive is accessible like it is on Windows:
The only downside is, that it has to be configured on every new client. But that shouldn't be the problem.
