Hello, I have 850 unused links in a InDesign CC 2017 file that are no longer active or needed. The pages that these graphics were on have been deleted.  Every time I go to open or print, it runs through all of these. How can I remove them completely from the document/links panel?

When a graphic is deleted, it should not remain in the Links panel.

Try exporting to make an IDML file, and see if that clears out the ghost links.

This actually does not work outright. I figured that you need to go into the XML structure and manually delete the root that you no longer are using in your document. Thank YOU!

The fact that we have to do either of these things is mind-boggling.
