Automatic image link if the Links folder is in the same folder as the document.
InDesign should automatically find images if the Links folder is in the same folder as the document. The old InDesign was able to do this. I'm constantly having to update links when the folder is moved around, and this also means re-saving the file, which changes the modification date.

ID v16.4 is not automatically finding links in the Links folder inside the folder containing the document, even though paths have not changed and are correct in the link info. Even if document is moved in the SAME folder as the links, they are not being found automatically. This has not been an issue until v16.
