Hi, I'm brutally struggle with Ai or even in Indd when it comes to changing arts from linked files with more artboards and replacing them easily. I have prepared board for printing and label cutting so that means I have couple of graphics ready to print and what I have to do is just relink linked file with another one AND and choosing different page its original file.
I have one design like this with 3 artboards/pages and I have other 11 designs.
In other project I have placed linked files. The problem is, each placed linked file Ai is showing file browser to select file and page which veeeeery annoying.
I need is speed it up the changing file workflow and be asked for the file and artboard just once! The reason is also I have cutting lines which must on same place. Is it possible? Any ideas?
-One of it is using symbols: -Delete all of your linked files except one. -Convert it to symbol by dragging it to the Symbols Panel or press New symbol from the symbols panel. -Duplicate the symbol as you like.
Once you double click one of it and change it by linking another file, all duplicated symbols will be changed.
