Subject:A Long, Long Time Ago...Linking Objects In Word From:"Justin Ressler" <JRessler -at- ewa-denver -dot- com> To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Tue, 17 Sep 2002 15:49:51 -0600
I still remember when...
If you recall, or care to look, yesterday I asked how to export all the
images within my document to a file. A couple of you fine folks posted the
answer, it worked like a charm, and I appreciate it very much.
Anyhow, so I set about removing all the embedded digital images within my
document, and this morning, I began "Linking to the Object" by performing
Insert>Object>Create From File(link to file = yes)> Filename.gif
Yes, that works...however, (pause for effect) this doesn't seem to keep my
file size down.
I realize that a major advantage of linking is so that when I edit my source
image it automatically updates, but should it not keep the file size down
too<qm> (My question mark key is still out of order).
So what's the deal...am I an idiot or what<qm>
Who had such a good day yesterday that he should have stayed home today.
