Chapter 39. Importing Text > Unlinking Imported Text

Unlinking Imported Text

When you place a text, Word, Excel or RTF file, InDesign creates a link to that file on disk which appears in the Links palette, just as it does when you place a graphics file. You can see the link in the Links palette (choose Links from the Window menu, or press Command-Shift-D/Ctrl-Shift-D to open or close the palette).

This is, of course, very different than XPress. Linking to text files is potentially cool, but in reality it’s often just a hassle, and we almost always sever the link by selecting the name of the linked file in the Links palette and selecting Unlink from the palette’s flyout menu (see Figure 39-4).
