Embed library graphic every time I use it

Hello there,

I design neon and I have created a library that uses a lot of parts that I need on every design I do. One is an electrode which there are often several of in a design. It is not a complicated thing but I have different sized ones drawn and kept in my library for ease every time I design neon.  I keep getting caught out sending the design to the neon bender only to find that I have 'forgotten to embed' the electrodes.

Rather than me have to remember to click on the drop down menu and embed them every time, is there a way that I can create one/change the ones I have so that when I drop it/use it in a design it automatically embeds out of my library?

It would be incredibly helpful and stop me having to rely on remembering to do it for him. When I open the file, it isn't obvious they aren't embedded as it is in my library so I can always see them, it is only when I send it to someone else and they tell me.

I know how to place and embed normal linked items or drop in graphics. This is specifically from my library.

Thanks

Phoebe

When you're done with your design, you can select all and use the Embed Image(s) command from the flyout menu on the Links panel. It won't matter if you have other objects selected if you use it from the Links panel. If you select all and are using the control panel in the Essentials Classic workspace, the Embed button won't show up unless the only objects selected are linked ones. If all the objects selected are linked objects, then you can use that Embed button. Unfortunately, Embed is not a recordable function to make an action.
