InDesign: Export all placed files into one folder


Question

I've got an InDesign doc ready for to send over to someone. Along with it I've got an images folder full of placed images that the InDesign file references.

While I was making my document lots of images went into this image file, but now it's gone through several iterations and not all of them are still needed/in use.

To keep things simple when I send over this file I only want to send over the images that are actually used. Is there a simple way to get InDesign to export a copy of all its linked files into a 'master' folder?

Accepted Answer

This is one of the problems that File > Package solves.

It will scan for any problems (e.g. missing linked files) then copy the document, all the linked images and fonts into a new folder.
