I have this same problem in both photoshop and illustrator. It's very annoying. We should be able to choose between relative and absolute paths.
i just relocate one file manually but all other still were unlinked with this little question mark. I was about to relocate all linked-files manually, But once i re-opened others psd's all link-pathes were "reorganized" according to the new folder. Ugh, two hours research and fuss for nothing. Adobes Filemanagment seem to change the path somewhere in the background. Sor.. *cough* ..ry adobe. Probably my impatience or maybe a wonder, i dont know. But i'll check when the next time another collegue renames or moves my project folder.
we just need a dialog box in which we can change the folder for our link-files. And then i wouldnt care if you save it with an absolute path.
Just let us relocate the folder.
If you put all of the links in a CC Library and shared that library with your coworkers, it would solve your problem.
That i tried but it said it couldnt find the linked psd, svg, png, etc ... But somehow PS CC seems to change the absolute path on its own once i changed one element, saved, and reopended it and in all others psds too.
But thanks for your time.
