    The following algorithm is used for relinking placed images in InDesign: (Note that when there is at least one file/image found in a step the other steps are not performed anymore):

    1. Match on Elvis ID in InDesign link or image: Direct match, do not search for other options
    2. Match on “Contained” relation in Elvis (based on XMP instance id)
    3. Match on “Referenced by” relation in Elvis (based on XMP instance id)
    4. Match on Filename, either in the same folder, links folder or just anywhere
