Default to linked images option


Recommended Posts

You have the option when creating the document, of choosing either Linked or Embedded:

I think it's remembered as part of the Preset if you want to change the default, and it may remember the last one you chose.

Yes..  You can force Publisher to prefere Linked...

But "linking" seems to be wired in Publisher...      The files still are stored inside of the document which leads to enormous size of the document if you save it , even when prefere linked is enabled and all images ...   are "linked",   because they are not realy linked..

Linked untill now only means..  that the still embeded files have to save a "link" to the original files, to notice, if they change..  in that case you can exchange them to the new files..

But still the data get stored to the document, which leads to big filesizes...

 

What do you think...   I think here the indesign concept is far better..

Is this still true in 2021?

(I was also surprised by the default Publisher behavior, and for my internet search, this thread was the top result.)

EDIT: The answer is no, linked documents now reduce the file size of the publisher file, which is very nice! 👍

There is a preview image included for each linked file, but it's much smaller than the actual linked document.
