Auto-fill file name in search bar when re-linking / replacing missing links
The process of replacing missing links could be less tedious if Illustrator would auto-fill the name of the file in the search bar of the file browser. For me, it is often easier to perform a search for the file name rather than navigating through multiple depths of folders. An option to auto-fill the file name rather than manually typing it would make this regular task much smoother.
I regularly collaborate with other designers and am constantly re-linking files when someone else has created or edited the design file or when projects are re-organized. So the task of replacing missing links really adds up.
An interesting idea!
I know though that any modification of this OS dialog, both Mac and Windows, is quite difficult for engineers to pull of, there is a lot of restrictions to it... and this option should definitely be located right there in the dialog and not buried somewhere else in Preferences, because this approach can annoy a lot of users who prefer it the native way.
