So if I have a number of linked files in my graph,  how can  I update the puth to all  those files at once If  I moved the folder  somewhere?

I'm not aware that you can bulk update. You right click on each resource and update the location. It is easier after the first time in that the second , third etc  re-open at same location as the first, but I don't see a way to just bulk update.

Thanks Dave for making it clear.   My guess it should be a feature request then.

Hello @kirkr5689,

 

As long as your dependencies are grouped, you could create an Alias pointing to the group. This way, you'll only have to change the Alias' path when the group has been moved.

I am not sure I understand how it would work.   I have a sbs for example with 30 linked files shown as empty with yellow triangles. 

How aliases  would help me?  Could you explain it step by step please.

Does it work only when file  linking  had been done from a folder alredy having an alias ?

An alias won't help you now but could in the future. If your resource links had been pointing to an alias, then when you moved your files you would just need to update the alias and to Designer it would look no different.

 

It is a good workaround, however it would be more useful if the links worked in a similar way to InDesign where if you move your source images you get a similar warning triangle. But when you update one link in the document, InDesign relinks the rest in the same folder automatically.
