Can you update links in InDesign (I'm using CS5.5) without affecting or changing the layer options that are set? I have a link that needs updating, but if I update it, I will have to go and manually change the object layer options back to how I had it, and there are a lot of them. Is there any way around this?
In the object layers options dialog there a preference for what do to when updating the links. The default is to retain the choices you’ve made.
If, you’ve changed the layer structure you’re out of luck. There’s no way for InDesign to know what your intentions are and you’ll have to start from scratch.
Not what I was hoping to hear, but I get it. And actually, your response prompted me to go into the original linked file and change the layers back to what they were before, and that worked great for me in this instance.
