Linked Assets – InDesign

in InDesign

In InDesign, layouts can encompass a variety of different images or other documents that are linked. When that linked file is modified, InDesign notifies that user that the link has been updated. Zoom can read the linked assets inside of an InDesign document automatically. Assets are automatically linked in Zoom so you can see which assets derivatives there are of that original asset.

  2. Check-out the asset.
  3. Drag-and-drop the asset from Asset Browser to the appropriate place in your InDesign layout.

When you check-in your asset, you can then see the links in the Links Panel in Asset Browser.
