CC Libraries don't save links to files dragged in

I am in the middle of doing a rebranding and working with a freelancer. I don't use CC libraries too much because mostly I find them frustrating, but I can see the advantage when working remotely and trying to share assets.

 

I create a 'footer' on a fact sheet. It consists of 4 logos that are placed into inDesign (logos live on my network drive) and some text with the address. I dragged this footer into a CC Library so we can have a consistent footer throughout our Fact Sheets. I shared with my freelancer and when he drags into InDesign, he tells me the placed logos have broken links. I know I can email him the logos so he can link it but that's a bit frustrating; this footer is one of many elements I'm planning to create as CC Libraries.

 

Is this normal behavior I have to work around? Or am I doing something wrong (I mean I just drag & drop into a CC Library).

 

Thanks!

This is normal behavior when dragging InDesign art into a CC Library. Only the InDesign objects are included. You would have to EMBED the logos in the InDesign file. Linked objects are NOT copied to a CC Library.
