Slow opening documents with links to a network drive letter that is not present
InDesign 2022 – version 17.1 x64 running on Windows 10.
Steps to reproduce the issues
Prepare a document in this way:
1a Create a new document.
1b Place an image from a network letter, that you can disconnect (VPN).
1c Save the document locally (the linked file should just be on the network).
1d Close the document, and close the VPN connection.
1e Open the document.
I would expect the document to open within 5 seconds or so.
It takes 18 to 20 seconds before the message about a missing link appears, and the document can open.
(With the VPN connection up from the start, the document opens instantly).
