    This is a baffling limitation. There are two problems:

    1. Collaborators are sharing a file, but the absolute path is different. This is common via DropBox, if the InDesign file on a network drive mounted differently, if it's stored in a revision control system.

    2. It's hard to isolate copies of a document with their assets. If I copy an INDD file (plus its images) to another folder, now I have all these undesired links back to the original working folder. I can't easily create isolated copies. This makes unplanned changes (e.g. if I change the content of images in the original working folder) impossible to prevent, unless I manually prune

    3. If I'm zipping up a set of folders that contain INDD files and linked images, I can't tell if I have zipped up everything.

    If I could CHOOSE whether I wanted an absolute or a relative link for each file, then I wouldn't have this problem. :)

    Should I be able to see 'amaarora's comment here? I got an email notification this was a known issue, there was a plugin to fix affected documents, but I don't see that comment here. Then I get an email that this issue is 'Need More Info'. What more info is needed?
