I have a document I created in AI where I've placed 50 AI files, linked, not embedded, so that I can duplicate the layout and then replace the links. After duplicating the file, I was able to replace a number of links, but I noticed that the link list didn't match what was placed in the document and when selecting a newly-placed AI file, that file doesn't appear in the Links panel. Am I missing something or is this a bug?
This is using AI 26 on a PC.

Can you check that when you place a file that in the Options the Link box is still checked?
I f not, it will automatically embed the next placed file.
Yes - yes, it is. There are no embedded files in the palette. There are links shown for files that are not in the document.
If it is shown as a linked file and you cannot go to that file by clicking the Go to Link button I would contact Adobe support (probably after the weekend).
Sorry to hear about the trouble you are facing. Would you mind sharing a few more details like:
Also, as Ton mentioned, go to the LInk Panel and select the missing/unwanted link, then select 'Go To Link' (second button from the left). It takes you where is the location of the missing link. Then go to the Edit menu and then click 'clear' to remove it. This will clear up the missing/unwanted link from your link window.
Looking forward to your response.
Thanks & Regards,
As to the link suggestion, please re-read and understand what I've written. The links in the palette don't exist in the document and links placed don't appear in the palette.
Thanks for getting back to me. Would it be possible for you to share a sample document in which this issue is happening? If yes, please share the Ai along with the linked images. We'll check it at our end.
