    There should be an option to always disable auto-anything, but especially auto-linking media. I spend a large chunck of my editing time correcting mistakes that Premiere's auto-linking causes. There should be an option to totally disable auto-linking, and have the possibility to manually link to folders the user specifies *and nowhere else*.

    I have to move projects and media around, on different machines, hard drives and network drives. I'm not the only one, I'm sure. This is what you have to do, if you edit video, and then hand over projects to others, for e.g. localisation purposes. Premiere utterly messes up these projects, and I have to carefully, manually correct and rebuild the projects, before sending them forward.

    The root cause of the problem is at least two-fold: 1) the way the entire Adobe suite of software does media management is broken. The system internally points to file names and paths, rather than any file-specific *unique* ID, like ProTools. 2) Adobe keeps developing software towards the YouTuber hobbyist crowd, making auto-this and that. For example, Premiere's audio "ducking" is not ducking as in side-chain compression, it is auto-generating keyframes (in a bad way).

    As a professional user, I find Adobe is not listening to me or any other pro user. I've complained about various critical flaws and bugs (e.g. the eternally broken AE-PPro dynamic linking) for over a decade, and they don't ever listen. The options are to put up with this, or to find an alternative suite of software.
