  1. No, all images seem to be linked by default in Designer 1.7.2 for macOS.

    No, I have not opened this document in Publisher.

    Nevertheless I have a licensed copy and tried it out during the beta. However I keep my copy of Publisher on an external drive and not normally accessible. The drive wasn't even attached when I created this document or edit it.

    I insert the image by dragging the file from the Finder and into Designer.

  2.  When I drag-and-drop JPG files into Affinity Designer 1.7.2, it seems that they are linked and not embedded. When the Designer file is saved, closed and then the original JPG files were removed (or moved), re-opening the Desginer file shows a "missing resources" dialog. Clicking "Resource Manager" on this prompt shows a Resource Manager that can be used to re-place the missing image.


    However this Resource Manager dialog can't seem to be invoked from elsewhere in Designer, unless of course by making a linked image missing.

  3. This missing "resource manager" is really frustrating. I just found out the hard way when I opened an Affinity Designer (version 17.2) document only to found out that the images within are missing and been forcefully shown a "resource manager" dialog to replace/embed the image.

    The problem is, at the time I inserted the image, I wasn't made aware that these are only "linked" images and not "embedded" (and there isn't any way to know which is which in Designer until it became missing). Normally I download clip-arts into the Downloads folder and after I've placed them into Designer, I removed the original files.

    Now I'm really frustrated of this "linked images" un-feature and there isn't a clear way to see which images are linked and how to forcefully embed them inside the "afdesign" file.
