CSInsider | Design - The improved Links Panel in InDesign CS4
In this seventh episode of CSInsider|Design, I go through the improvements of the Links panel in InDesign CS4. Working with InDesign has much to do with linking to external files (Illustrator files, Photoshop files, etc...) that are being placed into the document itself. In this new version it has become easier to view your links and see important information about them; information such as the color space, effective and original PPI, scaling ratio, where they are located, and so much more. One feature I particularly like is that when a file is linked to more than once in my layout, these links get grouped together in the Links panel so as not to clutter it visually, also, each link has a hyperlink that lets you navigate to where the link is being used in your file. So much easier!
