Wahoo! Linked Files!

When you start a new document you get the option in the new document dialog to set the Image Placement Policy to linked or Embedded. This can also be changed after the fact through the Document setup dialog which will affect resources added after the change. You can also use the resource manager to convert image between linked and embedded

In Photo? That seems to be only a Publisher feature, so far.

And in other posts I'm sure I've seen Serif staff say that the linked vs embedded is going to be removed for Photo and Designer.

I can't get an image to be linked even if I select "Prefer Linked" in the New Document dialog. When I drag and drop a big JPG image (~20 mb) in the document and then save that document, the file size is quite big (~25 mb). So I don't think the link thing is working. Isn't the main purpose of linking to keep the document size small by referencing a file rather than having it physically in the document?

Also, where can I find Document Setup dialog and Resource Manager? I searched the help but it didn't return any results.

I'm using Photo 1.7.0.209 (Beta)

Thanks!
