Linked text document

Hello,
I import long documents for the layout of paper books.
Yesterday, for the first time, the text in word format that I imported ended up in the links?
Usually in the links I only see the images...
If I accidentally delete the text file in word format, my whole book is in error.
Do you know where this could be coming from?
None of the other books that I have put on the page have the word file as a link.
I am using InDesign 2021
Thank you very much
Anne

Is the text imported the same as you usually import? Did you import it to a text box?

Hi Anne,

check your preferences when the document is open and uncheck:

 

Preferences > File Handling > Links

[  ] Create Links When Placing Text and Spreadsheet Files

 

This preference is a document preference.

Means: Someone else could have enabled it for you.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
