Drag an image directly from the links panel to the page.
There's something i'd LOVE to see in inDesign.
Imagine, you design a document, with different images, logos, etc. They come from libraries, folders, bridge, you name it.
Now you realize a logo you used on page 1 needs to replace a logo on page 24. But not ALL logos. And you want to do it visually by dragging and dropping.
You'd need to copy, paste inside, or use the relink command. And may be need to dig in your CC libraries to find it again.
Same thing if you'd like to place it somewhere else. You have all your links in the links panel, but you'd still have to link to the original source file or library.
We could just drag and drop from the links panel to the page.
I would expect it to be EXACTLY like Drag&Drop from : the Finder, the CC library…
Being able to fill an empty image frame, to replace an existing image in a frame, to use the frame's adjust settings…
And of course, it wouldn't affect the previous location of the image (we still don't have "swap items" natively in inDesign).
Does anybody see this as an interesting feature ?
Upvote or comment if you see anything else.

One answer that was sent via Twitter was “what about mini bridge ?”
With bridge’s option to view an Indd file’s link files, it makes a lot of sense.
