I have a chapter with about 100 or so graphics, they are all Imported and linked to some Folder.
Is there a Shortcut Way to convert all the Imported Graphics into Embedded Graphics???
At the moment, I am looking at the Insets Panel with all the graphics files and then
I thought there might be an easier way. Would appreciate any insight.
This could be easily done with an ExtendScript. But the question is: Why would you want to do this?
Embedding graphics will unnesserarily blow up your file and lock in the graphics.
Thanks for your response and your suggestion. By the way, What are Extend Script and how do they work???
I am trying to find easier solution to inherited problem, this is mostly for rchive purpose.
I have legacy (10yrs) FM books/chapters which have images stored on multiple network folders.
I would like to upgrade them to FM12 and then have single file (book/chapters) with all images embedded.
By the way, my still doing my way by following steps described earlier.
It is moving faster and I am getting better.
Once again, thank you.
Alternatively, you could clean up the old FM files by using his ArchiveES script (see: SWREG - ArchiveES ) to consolidate an "archive" version in one location including all of your external scattered graphics. Then your upgrade can be handled a bit better. [There's a packaging utility built-in to the newer versions of FM, but it won't get files scattered over multiple locations, so I wouldn't recommend you use it for this purpose.]
I would highly recommend against consolidating everything into a single file for a number of reasons:
If you're just looking to consolidate a legacy product in one place, I would still recommend going the Archive route and skip trying to put it all together in a single file.
