We have a problem with the Automatic link update in InDesign CS5.5 vers. 7.6
We want to see which images have been updated / modified (ie, marked with the yellow triangle in the links panel).
We want to be able to update the links manually.
Q1: Although we deselect the "Check Links Before Opening Document" and "Find Missing Links Before Opening Document"
under Preferences > File Handling the links get automatically updated even though we choose "Do not Update Links"
when we open the document.
Is it a bug, or is there another option to deselect the automatic update of links?
Q2: When we open old documents made in CS4, we get this error message (see the attached jpeg).
Could these two problems be related?
This is not normal behavior. I wonder what is different for you.
If you deselect "Check Links Before Opening Document," you should not be prompted to "Do not Update Links." This suggest you have corrupt preferences. So try:
Trash, Replace, Reset, or Restore the application Preferences: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/526990
I tried your suggestion, but it didn't work. But we found the problem!
Our final art dept. has a plug-in to scale, sharpen and reduce the images before print. The problem is there. I will talk to the system developers.
