This has been driving me crazy. In Illustrator CS2, I can't for the life of me figure out the logic behind including linked files while saving. Illustrator seems to completely randomly tick and un-tick that checkbox, and that line is almost always ghosted, so you can't change it. I like to always include linked files, but many times it just simply won't let me, and I can't understand why. I usually "place" my raster image files, rather than dragging them over from another window, if that is of any help. Anyone know how I can get this to work in my favor? Thanks in advance.
