Hello !

 

I 'm trying to update links to a PDF files with multiple pages, and when i do, the error message on teh picture appears. I have the 2021 version.

I modified a pdf file by "saving as " the original in the links folder of the package file.

 

It says " the file has layers different from the imported version. The link will be updated with the current source file settings."

I have to click ok many times to stop it from appearing but the links are not updated.

 

Thank you for your help 😕

Select the PDF in the layout and check the Object Layer Options dialog. If you are not controling the layer visibility via InDesign try setting When Updating Link to Use PDF’s Visibility.

Hi Rob day,

 

Thank you for your answer.

AFter few times, i understood that the person worked with different PDF files as links from previous versions, and not just the one that should been use for the file. So there were multiple link documents and not just one...that's why it didin't showed any modifications... : /

 

Cheers

Bonjour, ce n'est pas un message d'erreur mais un simple avertissement : la visibilité des calques définie dans InDesign ne correspond pas à celle du fichier source.

 

I modified a pdf file by "saving as " the original in the links folder of the package file

Je ne comprends pas bien : le lien pointe vers le nouveau ou l'ancien fichier ?

Bonjour,

Merci pour votre réponse.
En fait je me suis rendue compte que la personne qui as monté le fichier,
sourcait dans différents dossier car elle repartait d'une présentation
antérieure, au lieu de ne linker que un fichier de PDF relatif au thème de
la présentation. je ne comprenais pas pourquoi les changements
n'apparaissaient pas ^^, alors qu'ils étaient lié à d'autres fichiers.
J'ai changer donc tous ses fichiers liens et ça a fonctionner.

Merci beaucoup pour votre aide,
Bonne journée

Estelle J.
