Chapter 19. Importing and Editing Text > Linking to Text Files

Linking to Text Files

If you turn on Create Links When Placing Text and Spreadsheet Files in the Text panel of the Preferences dialog box, InDesign maintains a link (in the Links palette) to the original file on disk. Then, if the original file is edited, InDesign alerts you that it has been modified. This is, of course, totally different than the way QuarkXPress and PageMaker works, but it can be useful in some workflows. Warning: If you update the modified text file, you will lose any editing or formatting that you performed in InDesign (it basically just re-imports the file).
