Editing Linked Information

If you try to change information in an embedded object, a message indicates that you cannot do so from within the target application without breaking the link, therefore protecting the linked information.

However, you can double-click a linked object to launch the source file in the source application so you can make the changes you want. This is different from working with an unlinked embedded object, with which you can work in the target application, using the temporarily changed menus and tools. With linked information, you always need to work in the source because the source always updates the target.

When finished updating the source, click Save and then return to the target application. Your changes are reflected there.
