Is there an option somewhere to open or edit a linked file in it's original application, or at least show me the file in Finder? With InDesign I could option-double click on a photo or graphic to do that, or right-click and choose to Edit or Show in Finder. I don't see any options in the menus nor in the Resource Manager, meaning I have to find the graphic manually.

I too have looked for this feature but in vain, the official line is something like 'soon' or 'just not yet'.

I am really hoping it is what I imagine it to be.

Thanks. I hope it's high on the list because it seems like a basic and often used feature.

I did a search to see if this had been discussed elsewhere but couldn't think of how to word the search and nothing came up.

OOPS - never mind. I now see where it says the link has been modified. I couldn't see it before... I need to stop expecting things to be the InDesign way (in this case, a yellow alert symbol).
