    How can I create "portable" inDesign hyperlinks?

    BerlyMeister Level 1

      I need to archive a large catalog of .pdf documents.  To do this I created an inDesign CS5 file to act at the index.

       

      I then created hyperlinks to the individual files from the index.  This all works fine on my computer.

       

      BUT - when I move it out to a shared server where my department needs to access it, it ceases to work.

       

      File Structure:

      >> Desktop

      >>>>Project folder

      >>>>Indesign index file and resulting index .pdf at this level

      >>>>>>>Sub File folder-1

      >>>>>>>20 files that index file links to

       

      I know the reason is the file path is looking for my computer/desktop/project folder/sub folder.

       

      When I copied the project folder to a shared server the first three levels of this path changed.

       

      Does anyone know the work-around on this?
