Importing Options

When you select File, Place to bring an object into Illustrator, you have the option to link the placed file by clicking the Link check box in the Place dialog. If you select Link, the image you are placing is linked to its original file. If you uncheck Link, the file you are placing is embedded in the Illustrator document.

When files are linked, remember that if you send this current Illustrator file to be printed, you need to send the linked file along with it. You also have fewer options for editing the items in the file you placed. If you embed the file, your Illustrator file is larger because the file you are placing is stored inside.
