Hi

Previously, images were embedded by default, but recently I have had an issue where images are not being embedded in files.  I have several files that are ongoing and I add to /alter frequently.

 

Is there an option to always embed by default in new files?  Also, is there a way to go back to existing files and set it to embed automatically?

 

I have Illustrator 2020 on Windows 10.

It is a switch, when you place a file and uncheck the Link option when selecting a file, it will remember that for future files when placed.

where do you go to change this? Apparently I have sent it some number of years ago and would like to change it.

ONult,

 

Just as Ton said: select the file to place, then check or uncheck the Link checkbox as desired.

And on a Mac you need to have clicked the Options option to see that option.

And if you want to embed linked images in existing files, you can select them all in the Links panel and choose Embed.
