The Links Palette

You can use InDesign’s Links palette just as you would the Pictures panel of the Usage dialog box in QuarkXPress. InDesign uses the Links palette to list the placed graphics within your document, informing you whether any files have been modified or are missing. Like XPress’s Usage dialog box, the palette can also show you the image’s file path on disk.

To open the Links palette, choose Links from the Window menu or press Command-Shift-D/Ctrl-Shift-D. The Links palette also opens automatically if it detects a missing or modified file when you open a document; it then gives you the option of fixing the links immediately or waiting until later. The Links palette tracks all the linked graphics and text or word processing files in your document (we discuss text linking in Chapter 39). You can sort the list by name, page, or status by choosing these options on the palette’s flyout menu.
