Location: Edit>Insert New Object

This function lets you link or embed OLE server application data into the program. Windows feature object linking and embedding (OLE) is supported. When Insert New Object is selected from the Edit Menu, the Insert Object dialog appears.

When an object is inserted into a Design File from an application that supports OLE, the object can maintain a connection with its source file.

  • If you insert an embedded object, it is no longer associated with the source. You edit the embedded data using the original application.

  • A linked object remains associated with its source. When you edit a linked object in the program, the source file changes. You can print and plot linked or embedded objects.
