Hive mind - I have multiple documents with the same broken links. Having gone through the process of re-linking all the files in one document, is there any way to copy these links to other documents for the purposes of relinking or do I have to re-link every image in every document individually ? The linked files are all in different folders so I cant just select a folder.
you do not mention the OS platform and InDesign version you are using.
Look for a solution that is based on scripting.
For example look under the category Link here provided by Kasyan Servetsky:
Before running any scripts do a backup of your documents you are running the script at.
And if you want to run a script on a batch of open documents or documents in a specific folder or folder structure see Peter Kahrel's famous script batch_convert script:
There is a "Run a script" section there.
