I have all my images on various locations on a cloud space ( pcloud in this case) to be sure I have everything neatly in one folder, I would like to easily collect it from within AP.
The trick I learned from the above posts is the following:
embed all images if not allready so ( I have the settings so that they will be embedded as standard.)
logout from cloud storage, (or simply disconnect internet )
in resource manager select all files that are embedded
select make linked
a popup will appear where you can choose a location ( it would be very convenient if this simple functionallity was available allways; not only when the original locations are unaccessible....)
choose a folder to store the files, if needed, create a new folder, for instance on a removable drive usb stick or on your local drive.
All files will be copied to this location.
reconnect to cloud to embed more assets.
A pity it is not possible for fonts....
I think that if Serif really wants to be any sort of competition for InDesign this functionallity is a Must! Otherwise the battle is lost even before it starts.
( Obviously this goes for ANY feature in InDesign...)
If for instance I work on a project and want to give if to a collegue, It would be next to impossible if I do not want them to work on my computer. I should be able to hand them the complete package to work further on their own computer, without missing any asset at all.
