    Even just a year ago, Illustrator (Photoshop, After Effects) had a semi-automatic function, where, if you had unlikned files, linked the first manually, and Adobe saw that the file structure the link was in was the same as before, it'd look for the other files by name, inform you it found them, and asked if you wanted them replaced.

    I used to use this to re-color assets for animation (copy the folder of assets, change their color, delete the original folder) -and the programs would "find" every single other file if I "showed" the program where the first correct file was located

    For the love of everything, bring this function back, it's made it impossible to work with files older than a month (as now *every* link older than a month needs to be manually replaced) -which means I can barely use my existing projects.

    Now, for example, I need to translate a manual (which, being a manual is long and has lots and lot of pictures) -but I cannot, because, even tho I never moved the file or its assets, Illustrator has un-linked them, won't refresh them, nor will it automatically detect them.

    So now I have to translate in Acrobat!!!!!???!?! (at least the Acrobat files don't disintigrate over time -yet).

    In Acrobat.
    When I'm paying full price for Illustrator.
    Why would I keep doing that!?
