We need this feature so badly. I can't believe illustrator and in design are not more cohesive in their use of link files. We use linked files a lot in illustrator, and we seriously waste so much time relinking manually. it's absurd.
I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 23.0.6 which is available worldwide now.
Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.
