linked resource to external drive not connected loses correct path

Recommended Posts


I usually save my afpub locally and link files from an external drive. I sometimes want to work without the external drive or forget to connect it.
I am expecting to still work and save the file, but the files linked to the external loses the correct path permanently on saving; only the locally linked files are keeping the correct path.

I have this scenario:
1. placed pdf or jpg as linked from a connected external ssd
2. afpub file saved on desktop
3. disconnect external ssd
4. reopen afpub
5. no message of any missing resources
6. resource manager still shows the pdf and jpg as linked, but on desktop path, which is obviously wrong

I can reproduce this behaviour. It seems to be Windows specific.

I've logged it, thanks for reporting it
