[Designer|Photo] Opening a doc which already is expanded as an embedded doc

Recommended Posts

When you try to open via File > Open ... a document, which is already expanded as an embedded document from inside another document, it doesn't work.

For example ...

  • you have a document1 with an embedded other document2 inside
  • you expand the embedded document2 from document1 so it appears in an own file tab as <embedded>
  • now you try to "open" the usual way via "File > open" document2 ...

... that doesn't work, it won't open document2 here as far as it is already expanded from document1 in an <embedded> tab. But since the embedded document is just an internal copy here and no reference to an external file (it's no external file link reference), there is no reason not to open it also as a document file. It looks like the software treats it in this case (when the embedded file copy is expanded) as the external doc file might be already open.

BTW, the opposite way, opening document1 and document2 first the usual way via File > Open ... and then expanding the embedded document2 from document1 works instead.

Behaves in both Designer and Photo this way!

By the way, this seems to be a Mac-only problem.
