I am working on a huge document with hundreds of linked images. All files are now changed due to company policy. So I need to relink a bunch of files. This is not possible automaticly so I believed I found a solution. But the shortcut was devastating. If i choose say 10 links which have the same name, lets call them Image1 but now the name should be Image01. Same image is in other words used in several places in same file. I marked the links and choosed Relink. So far so good.
I choose the new name Image01.ai and then I copy the filename och press ok until the first file is ok. Then it opens automaticly a new window and i choose ctrl-v with the image01.ai file and press enter. I enter this for all image files.
Then I realized that the Link button is turned off???
It´s on checked if i manually click image01.ai but not if i paste the filename.
Please fix this bug and to be honest, a professional program as Illustrator should have batch-possibilities!
