One excellent reason to import by reference is correcting the graphics
becomes simple. When a graphic needs to be changed/fixed/updated, just
keep the name and location of the graphic the same. When you open
the file, Frame will automatically get the new one. When a graphic
is hard-pasted in a document, it must be manually replaced each time
it is changed.
