I created a publication based on a previous one. It's in a new folder with the default [fonts] and [lins] subfolders. Preflight shows no linking errors. Since there are numerous unused graphics in the link folder (from the old version), I wish to create a new package before sending to production. I get the above error with no explanation. How do I do this without manually copying every link (70) and font (46)?
This is CS3 on Vista Home Premium.
I just received the same error message and have read a dozen threads to find out how to solve the problem. I'm using MacOSX 10.10.3 and InDesign CS6.
I'm currently working on two annual advertising projects that I update once year for over 20 years. Never seen this message before. I've tried all the fixes that have been suggested.
In the one project, I removed all the new elements and then packaged it (advertising flyer). It worked! Then I added each new element one at a time. Each time it worked. Until the final one which had the same font, logos and photo elements as the first time it gave me the error message. This time it worked! What's going on here?
I'm trying to do the same with the second advertising flyer, but it has many more new elements which will take me longer to package it over and over.
Both of these design projects are done in InDesign CS6. For years I used OSX10.6.8 and never had this problem. Then I upgraded to 10.10.3 a few months ago. Could this be the source of the error message?
I solve the problem erasing the links that was outside de artboard page.
Or, trying export groups of links until find the wrong one.
i tried to find link files with "/" but can't find any, turns out its the file path gets too long. try resave the indesign file to another location with less folder hiarachy/ shorter names might help
I was having this issue with CC- no missing links or special characters in file names. I turned off "include PDF(Print)" in the Save As dialogue box and it worked after that. Might help someone else.
CJaegle, are you saving the PDF locally, or to a server or other attached volume?
Sometimes it takes a while to write the PDF for larger ID files. If there's a slight hiccup in the server's acknowledge/response to the system, the writing of the file fails. We've experienced this even with single page PDFs. Writing them locally, as part of the package, typically works.
My issue was I dragged and dropped an image straight from Mail onto the spread and while packaging it up MacOS was denying the access to the system folder where attachments are stored. After manually copying the picture to 'regular' folder everything worked fine.
Hope this helps someone.
