InDesign, InCopy: linked copy and image files randomly broken
We are a group of 16 graphic designers working on Macs. Our OS are varied between Sierra, High Sierra and Mojave. We work in InDesign 14.03 and 15.02 (with linked InCopy assets), Bridge 9.1 and 10.03, Photoshop 20.0.8 and 21.1, and Illustrator 23.1.1 and 24.1. We work on Box Drive and store our layout files and absolute-linked image assets there. It is critical that we are able to work on each others’ files in a high-volume, high-production environment. We don’t believe this is an issue related to our connection speeds.
Looking for a resolution to these issues:
InDesign: Not all image and InCopy files are automatically updating / relinking to original assets on Box. This occurs when both original and different users open the InDesign file to edit it.
Box Drive: Writers cannot always see ICML and Assignments files on Box Drive (in the Finder) after an Art Director has exported them for the writer to work on. This typically occurs shortly after exporting the assets.
Bridge: time to load image previews can take up to 15 minutes for some designers.
Thanks for reporting. We will review it
Hi! Reporting the same issue also with .ai and image files (stored in a Google Drive folder). Weird thing is that some images in the same folder don't break, some do randomly after 15 sec or so.
Hope to see a fix soon! macOS 12.5 - M1 Max Macbook Pro - InDesign 17.3
