When you have a "missing link" which is super common when you work in a team. You can see the filename of the missing link, eg. nicks-logo.ai but can you see what artboard is linked? 

InDesign does this fabulously with nicks-logo.au:3 so you know it's artboard 3 it's looking for. Even better, you dont have to then choose artboard 3 when your reselecting your link, it does this automatically. 

 

With Illustrator, you have to guess the artboard & then guess the crop to. and if the same .ai file is linked multiple times, do the same process multiple times rather than it doing all in one hit.

The uservoice is an Adobe site. If you are properly signed in, it should work.

Just tried the link Monika posted and it opened worked for me.

But you must create a new ID for it, your Adobe ID does not work there.
