    Duplicate links not collapsing into 1 group

    graew28348257

      I have been having issues with collaborations in InDesign. When I drop a duplicate item into InDesign that another team member has already put in the file it shows as a different file under the links menu. For example:

      User A(Me) - drops a pdf into the document

      User B - drops the same pdf into the document and it shows as a different file

      User C - drops the same pdf into the document and it combines with User B's file

       

      The same also happens when going in a different order:

      User B - drops in pdf

      User A - drops in same pdf and it shows as a different file

      User C - drops in the same pdf into the document and it combines with User B's file

      As you can see in the above image, the file I inserted is different from the files that User B and C put into the file.

       

      If I place in another of the same file it groups with my first one creating 2 groups of 2 files that are the same.

       

      We are all:

      On the same network

      Working in the same shared drive

      Running the same OS (macOS Sierra 10.12.3)

      On the same computers (imac 27-inch, Late 2013) with the same specs

      Running the same version of InDesign (2017.0 CC release Build 12.0.0.81)
