Reference / link images


Recommended Posts

It seems publisher as a DTP app copies / embedded external images via the place command increasing the file size which obviously is not a good idea.

 

afdinity designer unlike illustrator already cannot link images.

 

what is the plan for publisher? That is somewhat besides master pages one of the most used / needed function when working on publications.

When you use the ,place image' command from the toolbar, images are linked automatically; To link something you pulled in your document in another way (e.g. dragging from the finder), open the "Resource Manager" from the "Document" menu, select your image, and click the button "link image" (instead of "embed") at the bottom of the Resource window.

Using this windows, you can easily switch between linking and embedding.

We do support embedded and linked files, and you can switch individual images from the Resource editor. We plan to have a document policy to set the default for new images, but it wasn't ready in time for the beta. It will be added soon.

I see thank you - I was not aware of how this function was hidden.

 

I noticed that when saving first and then changing the type to linked files remain bigger

than when placing images changing them to linked and saving them.
