I have PM 6.5 installed on new XP computer old links were under owner\my documents\ -- New Computer is My Name\My Documents how do I fix all the bad links in my created PM files?
The link shows file location to be owner\my documents\file folder ..........
Is there a way to auto fix the links to show the new location on the new computer?
I'm not sure I understand the question. How and where did you install PM6.5? What links? To placed images in transferred PM publications?
Pagemaker looks for links in the same folder the file resides in first, and sometimes folders within that folder. Since your links are in a folder with a totally different name and location, it won't find them (as you've discovered) The easiest and best way to relink your files is to move the PM file into the same folder as the links, THEN open it. It should auto-find most if not all of them. Resave the file and the links are now referenced, and you can safely move the PM file back to where you want it.
