In my InDesign document, one of the elements needs to be relinked.

I would like to relink it to a clouded, CC library element present in the CC Libraries panel, and thus not lost position, properties, scale, etc.

But when I select "Relink from CC Library", then click on an element in the CC Library panel, nothing happens.

How does one relink an element from the CC Libraries panel?

Version: InDesign 2021 v16.1 on macOS Catalina

After choosing Relink from CC Library the CC Libraries panel pops up. Then you click the asset you want and click the Relink button in the bottom of the panel.

  • That worked! Thanks Wolff! AI really has a UX issue when the "Relink" button I'm looking for is literally the least visible thing on the screen! Apr 1, 2021 at 20:26

    I agree. It's a strange interface. Never use CC Libraries myself. Took some time to crack the riddle. 😁

  • Honestly I wasn't using them for the longest time but if you produce graphics for a brand who needs a style you can just put a character or brand assets and icon library in there and then it's all drag and drop illustration, like posing elements Apr 1, 2021 at 20:50
  • What threw me off was that it says "Cancel Relink".
