A very handy command found in nearly all Mac apps is 'Reveal in Finder'. You right-click an imported element, and the context-menu also offers this command. If choosing it, you are automatically kept to the original file in the Finder.

I find it incredibly useful, to quickly locate files whose original place you are not sure about.

Also, a way to see a list of all linked objects would be very useful, but I see this is discussed somewhere else.

Hello @PaoloT,

this is why we have the Resource Manager ('Document > Resource Manager...'). Try and see if this works for you.

The Resource Manager is great, but not quick. To find something in the Finder, you have to click the object in the page, see it selected in the Layer panel, and then go to the Resource Manager to find the Show in Finder command. A right-click on the object in page would be much quicker.

I see. I missunderstood your request and assumed you do not know that this functionality is already there. Just not where you were looking for it 🙂
