I am trying to export an InDesign file to PDF and am receiving two error messages. First - "This document contains links to files/URL(s) that are not accessible. Please check your network connectivity or the original source of content." Second - Failed to Export the PDF file." Preflight window there are no errors. Links window are to the placed photos. I can't find a URL or email address in the document that is not correctly associated under the hyperlinks window with the real URL or email address. I have read to export as a mark up file and have done that, but to no avail, continue to receive the error message. Document is a two page bulletin to be emailed to a group. Operating system is Windows 10 Pro. Creative Cloud just updated recently, automatically.
Thank you for your help,
Links window are to the placed photos.
Are any of the Links CC Library assets? Have you checked that all have a Status of OK?
Links are to the placed photos located on my external hard drive. Nothing is from CC Libraries. All links are "Status: OK". All hyperlinks in the document are correctly associated under the hyperlinks window with the real URL or email address.
I am having the same exact issue since updating to InDesign 2020.
Me, too. How do I deal with this? I can't make a PDF right now.
Are you on a mac or PC? It is all about the permissions on macs. Go to system preferences, security and privacy, privacy tab. Click the lock icon and login. In the full disk & access and files & folders, make sure all adobe programs are checked. If you can't do this which I couldn't at first, you will need to update your os.
THIS WORKS! Thank you so much!
Worked for me too. I dread updates. Only for these forums, I would be totally lost! Thank you.

THANK YOU so much! I upgraded my system to Big Sur 20 Aug 21 and since then Indesign was struggeling. Very very slow. I deleted prefs, zapped the PRAM, installed older version to just be able to do a simple text document. 3 days later, I installed the lates verison again and found your link. thank you! Apple support could not even help me.
