I have a document with link document.
Link document is renamed, then is for main document lost.
This is detected when the main document is opened (perfect).

I click on Resource Manager button, and open Resource Manager dialog, and Font Manager dialog - why!

Icon in Resource Manager is broken.

Close Font Manager and Resource Manager, and select lost linked document in Layer Panel (your icon unfortunately, it says nothing about the file being lost, so it's very difficult to find in the layer panel.).

Click on Replace Document in Context Toolbar, and select correct linked file.

The image is crossed out, and the linking character of the linked document disappears.
Therefore, I have to select a Picture Frame in Layer Panel, and in its Context Toolbar click on Replace Image.
Select correct linked file - then image is correct and icon with link symbol, but second linked (?) document must be deleted.

This is the correct and expected way to update a lost linked file?
Similarly, this happens when you repair it directly in Resource Manager (Replace...).

Edit: Unfortunately, I do not have a new version to try, because I cannot download huge files in this problematic time.

To find the lost file, in the Resource Manager you should have a Locate button that would take you to the proper page and layer.

Yes (I known), but visual differentiation of a lost file/document (its Status) in the Layers panel would be useful.

Sounds appropriate for a Feature Request.
