I have an AI file that contains several linked files, all sorts of psd and image files.
The problem is I don't have access to any of them, which is okay since I don't need the files to complete my job.
So, Illustrator always shows this message upon opening the file, asking to ignore or replace the files. Trying to replace each file is a no go, since there are too many and the names are dubious.
So my question is: Can I clean all the linked file references some way?
The file size is also very big for what it contains, maybe cleaning these nonexistent linked file references will chop the file size as well.
