"Yes to All" button when edits have been made to the imported version of a file location.
The lack of a "Yes to All" button when updating all links to a file location is debilitating. I literally have to press enter almost 3,000 times every time that InDesign notifies me that...
"Edits have been made to the imported version of "document name.here". You will lose these edits (with the exception of changes applied to spreadsheets through cell styles or table styles) when you update the link. Update anyway?"
The only options are "Yes" or "No" which requires me to sit there and hit the enter button for each pop-up message for an hour! Not to mention that all of my changes are always applied via cell and table styles, so the message doesn't even apply to me. Because of my regular work in these large project sizes, I have to do this 3,000 enter button dance several times per week. It is a pretty infuriating waste of time for an easy "Yes to All" button addition.

There is a way to disable the warning popup when updating links.
If you go into Link Options, there is a checkbox that says "Warn if Link Update Will Overwrite Local Edits".

Please let me know if I should re-post this to "bug" or "UI" for it to get noticed. I know that most users aren't using a large number of document links, but for those of us who are it is a massive issue. This is really a basic UI oversight and should be an easy fix. Hopefully it doesn't get ignored because of a lack of votes...
