Our picture library was reorganized and all links in our catalogue needed to be updated. When we edit the links and choose the new path for te picture, InDesign suddenly closes. Only solution we found was to erase existing picture and import a new one, because even if we try to replace the picture the program closes.
Can anyone help? Reimporting all pictures is extremely time consuming...
If this is just a path change for the images, one method that has been suggested is to export the file to .idml
The .idml file is really a .zip archive, so you can rename it to .zip and open the archive. Find the DesignMap.xml file and open it in a text editor, then use Find/Change to correct the paths. Change the extension back to .idml, open in InDesign and you should be good to go.
