Some assets in the the Digital Assets Manager (DAM) are now
being converted into bundles, making them hard to link or see.
With the new AEM version 6.1, when some assets are uploaded into
the the Digital Asset Manager (DAM), they are converted by the
UBCMS into bundles of files, making to harder to link to them or
even recognize them in the File Chooser.
In the Content Finder or the Digital Asset Manager console, the
files will still be displayed 'normally' as you would see them on
your desktop, but in the magnifying glass finder tool, they are
displayed as these bundles.
Unfortunately this is now considered 'normal behavior' for the
UBCMS. We have asked Adobe to make it more consistent, but authors
should expect to see the bundling behavior for any files that have
a series of natural segments, such as Powerpoint presentations
(with multiple slides) and Adobe Acrobat files (with multiple
One workaround is to look for the parent 'folder' that
represents the entire bundle of files, and link to that.
But the best workaround is to look for your file in the Content
Finder, where the filenames are shown as you would see them on your
desktop, and then drag and drop the asset into a File Download
component. (Please note that we recommend you only link to DAM
assets using the File Download component -- see
this Known Issue.)
