Force InDesign to use Links folder that is relative

Hey!
InDesign is not looking at the Links folder that is relative to the InDesign file. It's going to the specific path. Any way to force this to work correctly? I don't want to have to unmount drives just to get it to look at the Links folder that is sitting right next to the file, or go through the hassle of relinking.


Thanks!
Scot

As far as I know, there is no way in InDesign to set that up except to manually choose that folder.

If you work on the Mac, an essential utility is Default folder which greatly speeds updating links in a number of ways. Default Folder is made by St Clair Software (I have no interest in this company but I've used this utility for decades and it's saved me immense amounts of time:
