Creating a New Object to Embed in the Project

You can create a new file as an embedded object in your project. In this case, the new object exists only within your project file. To do this, follow these steps:

1 In your project plan, go to the location where you want to embed the object, for example, the Gantt Chart or the Notes area of the Resource Information dialog box.

2 Click Insert, Object.

3 In the Insert Object dialog box, be sure that the Create New option is selected.

4 Scroll through the Object Type box and click the name of the application with which £ you want to create the new object, for example, Microsoft WordArt 3.0 or Paintbrush Picture. °

5 Specify whether you want the new object to be displayed as an icon in the project and then click OK.

A miniature version of the application either appears in the location you selected, or the application launches immediately (see Figure 16-14).

6 Start creating the new file on the spot.

If necessary, double-click the application to launch it.
