Hello and a Merry Christmas to all in the Forum,

 

I've been trying to find a good workflow for using Affinity Designer in my projects. I am fascinated by the embedded documents feature. Saw a couple of videos of how to live edit documents in documents but I want to do something different. I want to create a document with different artbords and place/embbed/link (?) this document in SEVERAL other documents. (It's UX Design - each artbord presents a different screenshot and the other documents are Usage Mockups, Adds and a User-Manual) Then I want to modify the First Document (UX-Artboards) and then make the other documents update to these changes. Can't find the button. Or do I have to use "replace" each and every time?

Currently, there is no support for linked files -- an embedded document is completely independent of the original file. A linking feature has been requested by quite a few users but as yet has not been implemented.

Hi R C-R

thanks for your reply. Ok. Yes - would be a cool feature - especially if you have different people working on a project.

 

Still - the software is cool enough to forgive this missing feature.
