I have a file that has dozens of images and dozens of copies of each of those images. When I update one of the images, why are the others not updating? They are the exact same file in the exact same location.
Why hasn't Adobe fixed this yet? When I use my 3D software, all I have to do is point to the folder location and ALL of the missing links are updated. I don't have to find the exact file name, relink each file, etc. It's EXTREMELY time-consuming and frustrating.
I understand your frustration with the issue you're facing when updating images and their duplicates in Adobe Illustrator. It's definitely frustrating when software behavior doesn't align with your expectations, especially when it involves time-consuming processes.
