I've been given a package where all links are broken in the indesign document, all links are in two seperate folders and indesign automatically relinks SOME files when i relink a file. But some of the links it will not relink even though they are in the same folder and have the exact same filename as the ones linked in the document. I've noticed that most of the files have both a special character in the filename (mostly "ë"), and are in a .wmf format.
There are 200+ links and they are all technical drawings that look alike so manually changing them would be both tedious and a big chance of making mistakes.
Has anyone encountered that Indesign won't automatically relink files because of the filename?
Bonus info: when downloaded to a Mac, these files won't even show up in Finder. I suspect this is because the special character ë bugs the system out somehow.
