Mass link updating
on Aug 8, 2008 at 6:43:43 pm

My company has changed their logo. No big deal to them of course, but to me it's huge. I have a 300 page book, one of our biggest marketing tools that I have to put this logo on. Not to mention the brochures and other marketing projects I have done for them.

Is there a way that I can update this on all the pages as a group? Is there a setting to make Indesign always automatically fix links, or will I have to open each page and fix it page by page?

I'm using Indesign CS3.

...please help.

I realized further info was needed about this project.

It was created one page at a time over about 4 years, and each page is a separate .indd file. That's why I'm asking if there's a better way than relinking it on each page, 1 by 1.

Thanks in advance.

You should save your new logo with the same filename and location as the original.

As you open InDesign files with the logo, you will be asked whether you wish to update the link automaticaly, say yes.

Now if your new logo has a different size than the original it should scale to match the original logo size. If you do not wish this to happen, then go to
edit >> preferences >> file handling >> (uncheck: relink preserves dimensions)

Thanks Mike! It's been a pain, but I think I have finally finished. In the future I think I will try to set it up as a single multi-page document. I didn't really understand master pages, but after some research I think I may have a handle on it. Seems like it'd be a lot easier that way...
