Hello all. I need to substitue place and link method with something else with which i create frames and tables and then place in other document anytime i want. but my original document may in some cases be lost in sense that i wont remember i which document my source frame was since i keep deleting and creating multiple copies of documents in network memory.
I know cc library can be helpful but i need easier
Since you have already verified that place and link wont work for you, you can create InDesign snippets and try.
Simply drag the frame from InDesign window to your desktop. As and when needed in any document, drag it back from desktop to InDesign and it should work. It does not depend whether you have deleted your original document or not.
In this case however, you wont have a "modification link notification" as in case of place and link.
