Hi kayann,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Embedded documents are embedded inside the afdesign/afphoto file and are independent from the original file. We will add linked documents later in a future update.

Currently there's no way to un-embeded them other than deleting the embedded layer. If you need the objects/elements inserted directly in the main document, double-click the embedded document on canvas - it will open in a new document tab - and copy/paste the objects/elements from the new document tab to the main document.

Ok thanks! Can't wait for the update..!

So the only way to break the link is to enter in the embedded file, select all, copy and paste it back in the document..?

Windows 10, Affinity Designer + Photo (Graphic Design, photo-editing).
